Hello once again folks, it's time for another SteamOS update.
Today Pierre-Loup announced that the SteamOS update 133 has been pushed to the Alchemist Beta.
Besides the normal security fixes, this release features a newer Linux kernel (no specifics) that boasts more network drivers and better Intel graphics performance. On top of that this release also features the Nvidia 340.32 drivers which fixes some of the white screen bugs when switching between modes.
Personally I'm happy to see a newer kernel be released, but I'm still waiting for Valve to introduce Steam Video/Music. What do you guys think?
