See the "Updated system requirements for TF2 dedicated servers" thread for more information on the toolchain update.

- In case you care about low-level stuff, here it is, but for most people, it'll be boring and of no use. Also included is a sync of recent Steam Datagram system configuration changes that properly implement the Sydney data center IP range changes

This is the update that changed the tool compilers. It's been available as a beta branch for a week or so and had a pinned thread on spud (that inevitably got full of posts).

Looks like some sort of streamlining for later updates, but nothing of concern or importance to players.

I do think I noticed that loading my backpack and some of the initial in-game loading seemed to happen a bit faster.
