SteamOS 3.5.19 Preview out for Steam Deck

By - | Views: 30,050

Valve released another small SteamOS Preview update for Steam Deck, along with an additional Steam Client Beta update. 

After releasing SteamOS 3.5.18 Preview only recently that curiously mentioned some rather vague "Stability and security improvements". Here we are again with SteamOS 3.5.19 Preview with more weirdly vague "Additional stability and security improvements".

I have to admit my curiosity has piqued now. What are the changes and why are Valve now being repeatedly vague on it, when previously they've been really quite detailed with all their fixes? It could be that they don't want to detail them properly until it goes stable for everyone, to prevent issues being jumped on by bad actors to cause issues perhaps.

A Steam Deck Client Beta update was also released with these changes:


  • Fixed slow startup on busy systems.

Remote Play

  • Fixed the streaming button staying stuck on "Stop" when the streaming client exits quickly.

For the rest of the industry "security improvements" means either that they found a way to secure the device against the owner or that they updated something to a newer version.
"Preformance improvements" can either mean exactly that, updating soemthing to a newer version or adding secret features for business partners.

It looks like they hired someone from ASUS to write their release notes 👍🤣

Hope this is not a sign of things to come, this is one thing I hated about ASUS.

This is how Nintendo writes a lot of their security update notes, too. Very informative.
