New client update out for beta and preview users. Supposedly changing download regions no longer requires a restart, but they still do, based on my testing. A rollup of gifts received has been added to the Quick Access Menu under notifications. Steam Input, desktop Linux, and the virtual keyboard got some fixes as well. Full patch notes are as follows.

Steam Input

  • Controller configurator now groups commands if they are attached to the same input

  • Fix the “Start in Big Picture Mode” setting not updating
  • Center the navigation column in the Big Picture Overlay vertically to match the rest of the main menu
