Valve released a Steam client beta for Halloween 2016, but without any apparent spooks.

The announcement details appear to be revised from when I first looked at the 31 October update for Linux users as originally mentioned some other changes while now for Linux users does note just a fix for ZFS users.

Specifically today's beta update outlines, "Fixed issues when installing games into filesystems such as ZFS which report an abnormally large sector size."

Aside from Linux-specific work, today's update is built against Chromium CEF v54, improved error messages, Steam Configurator support for the PS4 Dual Shock Controller, PS4 controller introvements, and more.
