The team at Valve has surprised us all by releasing a game on time. The Linux version of Left 4 Dead 2 is now completely playable (in beta, at least), and brings with it the opportunity to test out a new addition to the game: The Extended Mutation System.

Also impressive: This update and beta is not just for Linux gamers – Windows and Mac clients are getting the good stuff, too.
- Server operators can now specify whether or not custom content is allowed when playing on their servers. This can be set on a per game mode basis – see cfg/addonconfig.cfg for details.
- Fixed main menu not refreshing after workshop add-ons have been loaded. Custom UI skins should display correctly now.
- Reworked add-on management to improve stability and properly support custom mutations
- Prevent an intermittant crash when browsing the add-ons screen
