SteamOS Update 123 Fixes Multiple Reboots, The Compositor
Written by Michael Larabel in Valve on 19 July 2014 at 09:05 AM EDT. 2 Comments
Valve pushed down the SteamOS update 123 to their Alchemist Beta channel this week.

Besides pulling in updated upstream packages from the Debian 7.6 base, there's a fix for situations where applying updates would require multiple reboots. Additionally, the SteamOS Compositor has been fixed for addressing corruption on the first time a overlay or notification is rendered to the screen. Most of the package updates in alchemist_beta 123 involve security fixes and/or minor upstream package updates.

More details on this latest SteamOS beta update can be found via SteamCommunity.com.
