In steam news:
Additionally, work is under way to transition players from WON to Steam. WON authentication servers will be phased out by the end of summer. If you have not already done so, you can download Steam here.
Don't think that Steam/Valve will ever give you a date and if they do many times it is delayed....
[EDIT:] and what the hell is this doing in Linux Dedicated Server Forum............

Yes, WON servers will be stopped at the end of the month. Following is a quote of one of yesterady's HLDS newsletters:

WON will be shut down by the end of the month. We are currently using a
variety of delivery mechanisms to inform people, and have more messages
on the way (with more details).

Do you host your server? If so, talk to me, I'll help you. If you are renting, just ask your hoster to do it. If you would like us to host you a steam server, visit www.xtremeservers.net :)
