I'll be trying it but I have to ask: are you folks ever going to fix the Library/scrolling issue in Windows7? I'm about sick of it and have been for months now...

So is this the version that has a fail-safe working offline mode, and allows us to install games to different folders?

Say you have many catagories but only have your window sized to show a few of them, you can NOT scroll to the bottom of the list unless the very last catagory is open. You can get close but as soon as you scroll one click more, it bounces right back to the top of the list.

Does this mean games using the Source Engine shared content can now be put onto the new content system?

When you unblock a friend same dialog is shown as blocked one.. Don't remember this ever happening and it does it on stable build as well.

EDIT: report bug link needs updating too

Would be nice to fix the scroll bug as well.
in the client it jitters up and down while scrolling though the store.

Only fix atm is to set your mouse to scroll 6 lines instead of 3.

When I updated doom 3: resurrection of evil, quake mission pack 2 and quake 3 team arena updated. Something to do with the new content system I guess?
