    Hmm, nothing special. Looks like just a simple Steam upgrade.

    Apparently they tried implementing a new version then reverted back. Notably the HL2 media section in ClientGameInfo.vdf was slightly changed during that brief period.

    Looks like they revised the www.steampowered.com home page as well. Definitely gearing up to add more Steam server providers to expand the distribution base for future Steam releases (er, like Half-Life 2, for instance).
