Here we go again Steam Deck fans, another upgrading ready and waiting to be downloaded. This time though, it's a pretty small one with only a few changes. All welcome changes though of course.

Some users noticed recently that downloading on the Steam Deck might cause the Steam Client to freeze. Obviously a pretty major problem and one thankfully Valve has solved quite quickly since the last update.

On top of that, they continue to make using the on-screen Keyboard even better. Only recently they introduced dual trackpad typing, like that found in Big Picture Mode with the Steam Controller that many people missed. Now, they've tweaked it even further. You can use the Left and Right Triggers to select keys and in addition, there's options to adjust the sensitivity of the trackpads which sounds ideal for people to get it exactly where they want it.

My quick look at the Steam Deck Keyboard if you missed it:

Wait, what did you use instead of triggers before? That's how it works with the SC.

Is there non-staggered layouts (non-typewriter shaped), or someting like the old SC big picture one, which makes more important keys bigger?
More generally, can keyboard skins change the layout? Like the poster above asks :)

AZERTY is such a pain, even for writing French... And since it's not like you can use your existing muscle memory anyway, why not go all the way to BÉPO? You could then easily type ÉÈ»«… and others, like non-breaking spaces.
