Been having trouble logging into Steam lately? You're not alone, it seems there was a problem with the auto-login which has now been solved.

Just one of the bug reports had a good hundred comments on it and there were reports across Reddit too it seems. The latest Steam Client Beta from June 15 should now solve this, and when enough people have opted into the Beta to show that it properly fixes it, then we will see it rolled out to the official client. Seems like it was somewhat widespread too so it's good to see Valve fix it up.

Another nice little improvement is that Windows versions of games run through the Steam Play Proton compatibility layer for Linux should now see improved startup time. That's nice to see, as some of them felt like they took forever to load up.

Having games regardless of native builds or stuff run through Proton starting up as quickly as possible is another essential item for a possible SteamPal handheld. We've seen more evidence towards this coming including the recent Left 4 Dead 2 update adding Vulkan and lots of controller improvements. It also makes sense that Valve are looking to upgrade the downloads page and library folders interface too ready for the SteamPal. If you missed it we also wrote up some notes on what we want to see from a Valve SteamPal.
