VALVE --
Valve pushed down a big update yesterday following their successful Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Linux launch last week.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with its 30 September update adds support to the Linux client for connecting to community servers and also being able to download custom content from servers. Additionally, thbere's also fixes for bugs using non-English locales and an added icon in the store page. Last but certainly not least, there's also improved client stability with this update for those running into crashes and such over the past week of CS:GO Linux gaming.


Besides the Linux-specific work, there's also a lot of other Counter-Strike: Global Offensive changes as outlined by the Counter-Strike blog. Meanwhile we're still waiting for AMD's CS:GO optimized Linux Catalyst driver as for now the Linux performance is in NVIDIA's favor and was reinforced yesterday by the GeForce GTX 980 Linux review.
