    An update to Team Fortress 2 has been released. The update will be applied automatically when you restart Team Fortress 2. The major changes include:
    • Fixed another exploit that allowed clients to have an out-of-date, corrupt, or modified version of items_game.txt
    • Fixed clients not downloading *.dx80.vtx, *.dx90.vtx, and *.sw.vtx files from servers running custom content
    • Fixed sv_pure defaulting to -2 instead of 0
    • Fixed font issues for Mac clients
    • Made the Spellbook Magazine a base action slot item for players to equip and use when playing on a server that uses Halloween Spells
    • Fixed not being able to wear Halloween-restricted cosmetic items on Halloween maps outside of the regular Halloween and Fullmoon events
    • Halloween spells can now be enabled and controlled on servers via ConVars tf_spells_enabled and tf_player_spell_drop_on_death_rateHalloween spells can now be enabled by map authors via HolidayEntity by setting the flag HalloweenSetUsingSpells

    I'm surprised it took so long to enable Halloween items on Halloween maps.

    sv_pure -2? Just how far does that command go??

    Anyway, being able to now use Halloween items on Halloween maps is nice.

    That wasn't on purpose really, just a programming error. It basically made sv_pure a value that was nonexistent on all valve servers, and caused some errors with all non-vpk custom content.

    I see. Oh Valve!

    Also, it seems my iPad's autocorrect had changed "maps" to "apps". Because obviously "maps" isn't a real word.

    But what if you want to make a Smissmas event map?

    Also when did minor patches get automatically consolidated into the same thread as the large patches they follow? And how?

    if ((timeSinceLastPatch < twoDays) && (changelogLineCount < 5))
    AppendThread();

    At least that's what I'd do. But I was wondering about that too, it is a smart change.

    Because who uses maps when you can buy apps? From the Apple store.

    Apple doesn't know about maps? No wonder they had problems with their app that gave directions...
