Steam is updating

Steam Pipe is Steam's new content distribution system.It changes the way games (including dedicated servers) are downloaded, updated and stored.– Players will now make a landing sound if they un-crouch while crouch-jumping.

As Steam Pipe now uses HTTP it allows not only datacenters hosting multiple servers to setup a caching but is also very useful for LAN's.Steam beta users have turned up something very interesting in the platform’s latest test client.As archived by Steam Database on Github, the current Steam beta client update includes a bunch of code related to the client UI and some images which may be mockups or concepts for a potential overhaul. There’s a new navigation column on the left which can be filtered with various parameters, topped by a search bar.A row of tabs across the top guides users to their collections of apps, comics, games, TV, movies and music, as well as the main Steam Community hub.The image, reproduced above, presumably shows the Games tab of this proposed new Steam client UI, and installed titles are arranged in tile form.A menu of tabs takes the user to collection, settings and community menus, and a “memories” section shows off screenshots.
