I've been plodding away at the beta over the last few couple of days. I'm hoping to initiate the switch over next week.
People running servers should make themselves familiar with this page.. because once we switch over this will be the only way to update and run dedicated servers.
The Linux version has progressed. I am able to get to the menu now – but it quits when I try to join a game. That might be because I'm running it in a virtual machine though – let me know if you're having more luck.
The rift support (apparently) doesn't work at all. I think I need to compile my own rift head tracking dll – because the one Valve provide is (apparently) crashing. They haven't given me access to the head tracking code – so I don't know what's happening there.
It's been a lot of fun pushing updates out via Steam Pipe. It means I can say to people "hang on – try now" – and they try and stuff is fixed. Instead of "try after the next update in 2 weeks".
