This week there four updates to the beta Steam Deck client and one preview update for SteamOS. As you might expect, quite a number of fixes made it in, from Desktop Mode, to Steam Input, to the screenshot manager, and everything in-between.
SteamOS 3.4.8 (preview) updates the graphics driver that fixes a GPU crash with Splitgate.
Tuesday’s Deck client update adds “minor performance improvements when changing sections,” adds a toggle for spell-check when making notes, and includes several fixes for the screenshot manager, friends and chat, in-game overlay, BPM, Steam Input, and Remote Play Together.
Wednesday’s and Thursday’s updates were minor in nature. Wednesday added a filter to the Achievements list and restores the display of Special Offers in the What’s New section. Thursday added a few fixes for Desktop Mode and ‘dynamically updates the UI’s scaling factor when the system scaling setting changes.’
On Friday “new notification indicators” were added, adds new “In Progress” section to the Achievements panel in Desktop Mode, tons of fixes/improvements for Desktop Mode, and Steam Input updates the Controller Summary page “so that it scales better at different sizes.”
