    Jill usually announces the changes when a stress test goes live. This is the latest set:

    • Added a TF2-specific "Report Player" system available while connected to a game server. Button located next to the "Call Vote" button on the main menu.
    • Added round start UI elements
    • Tuned rank progression so that it's easier to progress through lower ranks
    • Fixed various issues that could occur whenever a player abandoned a match during the 10-second countdown
    • The game server no longer checks for idle players during ready-up mode (also applies to MvM)
    • Performance medal awarding logic now better scales with total match time
    • Pyros now receive Support points whenever they airblast Invulnerable enemy players
    • Added a "Global 100" leaderboard to the competitive matchmaking lobby screen
    • Expanded the number of friends that can be visible in the Friends leaderboard

    You forgot a few:

    - Fixed a case where players would sometimes drop while connecting to a match server, and not trigger an abandon (resulting in 6v5, etc)
    - Timing improvements in the Stats and Medals screen
    - Fixed parties disbanding after clicking the new "Disconnect" button on the Stats and Medals screen
    - Fixed various methods players used to escape spawn during the 10-second countdown
    - Fixed broken countdown screen state when a player would abandon the game during the final countdown
    - Fixed players seeing a benign "not connected to the game coordinator" message after leaving a match. (This did not affect match results)

    As for the regular update: Valve has been going on a cosmetic materials/models updating spree huh?

    From my understanding, these updates aren't being directly made by Valve but all the content creators are jumping on the bandwagon to update their cosmetics now Valve have started accepting updates to items again.

    What, mainly, are they doing? Adding LODs I hope.

    Their probably adding LODs but I know they are also adding new styles and making cosmetics multiple/all class (like the Dead of Night or the mustachioed mann) as well as making better quality materials and models.
