Patch Notes
0 Frags +

Via HLDS:

Valve- Fixed a server crash exploit
- Updated localization files

Rumor has it:

- The arrival of this update spells an end to another record-shattering drought of 80 days without an update, with the last one having occurred on 1/18/20 (a Saturday, at that)
- This update is as a result just the 2nd update to occur this year so far
- The previous all-time record drought was a stretch of 72 days from 5/14/19 to 7/25/19 (7/26/19 UTC)
- Before that, the now 3rd all-time longest drought was 63 days, a stretch earlier in 2019 from 1/22/19 to 3/26/19

- If you were a translator and you were itching for the next game update, then good news at last, because this update packs in nearly 3 months worth of your efforts
- Quick FYI, it appears that SteamDB's GameTracking is now properly extracting a bunch more files out again so some of this stuff may have happened literal months ago, in particular the stuff that starts with "hl2/". Changes to files under the "tf/" structure are indeed recent!
- As always, localization file updates are made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You

- Fun fact: this update was almost definitely being tested in a password-protected branch called "jillsquarantinetestingparty" (which has since been deleted ever since this update went out the household doors)
- The name of which is in reference to Washington Governor Jay Inslee's mandatory quarantine in response to Jinping's Plague (see bottom of post for how you can pitch in with the fight!), recently extended through to May 4th

- Size is close to 30 MB

------------------------

Virus with no vaccine continues to impact basic social services and livelihoods globally. Folding@home is now at one exaFLOP of power and growing. Be part of the 2nd exaflop if you aren't already part of the 1st. For more info see https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/fhb5e4/coronavirus_specific_gpu_projects_are_now/.

Please let the crash exploit actually be fixed, the game has been unplayable in casual. Literally connect to games and they don't load.

glad it only took a major news outlet reporting on the issue for valve to do anything

glad that it's fixed so I have somewhere to play outside of normal NA hours, just done with the state the game's come to
