    A new Steam client has been released and will be automatically downloaded.

    • Fixed friends chat and other UI being visible when authorizing an in-game mictransaction

    • New Steam Chat
      • Unread messages or active voice chats will now update your Steam tray/taskbar icons to indicate these states
      • When displaying a Steam store link in a chat window, extra information about the game, such as screenshots, video and price, are now displayed in the chat history

    • Windows
      • Significantly improved performance and decreased memory usage for HTML based UI (Store, Community, etc) in the main Steam desktop window

    • Steam Input
      • Added the ability to change controller type in the “Define Layout” screen. This only affects the glyphs and configurations recommended for the device and the limits of whatever low-level API the controller is read through still apply. For example if a PS4 controller is currently treated as an Xbox controller because of a driver or non-Steam Input remapping software presenting the device over Xinput reclassifying it to a PS4 controller will only correct the glyphs and the gyro/trackpad will not work.
      • Fixed an issue with devices with digital triggers and buttons bound to trigger outputs
      • Added Steam Input per-game settings to the desktop client’s game properties page.

    • In-Home Streaming
      • Streaming from Mac OS X Mojave is currently disabled

    • Big Picture Mode
      • Added the new chat functionality to Big Picture Mode. If you’re using a custom Big Picture Mode controller configuration please update to the new recommended configuration under Settings->Base Configurations->Big Picture Mode. Hit X/Square to browse configurations and apply the recommended configuration.
      • Added "Invite to Game" action to Big Picture chat
      • Chat scaling is now done automatically based on whether Big Picture is running on a large monitor (>40" diagonal) or running in VR with the option to override regular and VR scaling settings individually
      • Default chat controller bindings for Steam Controller/Xbox are:
        • Left Trackpad/Stick: Scroll the UI, press to show/hide the friends list
