    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 an exploit related to not respawning in the spawn room at the beginning of Casual and Competitive matches
    • Fixed Pyros griefing teammates by attacking them with the flamethrower
    • Fixed Medics getting a permanent speed boost after healing a charging Demoman
    • Fixed Medics getting the Demoman's charging speed when using Mediguns other than The Quick-Fix
    • Fixed the Strange Razorback double-counting the number Spies shocked
    • Fixed a bug related to the Sniper's zoom and taunting
    • Fixed players being able to pick-up the PASS Time jack while they are stunned
    • Increased the matchmaking system's preference for matching large pre-made parties against each other in Casual Mode. This should result in more balanced matches, but may cause a slight increase in queue times for larger parties.

    It's not listed, but 2016 72hr Jam medals are name-able now!

    EDIT: Not name-able, but describe-able. Sorry for the confusion.

    EDIT EDIT: Actually, it is name-able.

    You used to be able to do that pyro thing with the demoman's pills too, but both got fixed around the same time, so I guess the pyro just got re-broken?

    I sent an email to the TF Team via the Valve Contact form with problems regarding a event passtime map I'm working on. The problems were that the Jack would not blowup pumpkin bombs, and you could hold it while ghost-stunned. I do not know if this is fixed considering the "being able to pick-up" as I have not tested it yet.

    I probably won't either, I actually got rid of the ghosts out of frustration and doubts that valve would ever fix the problem either. (though, I was more frustrated at the time) I don't know if I can retrieve the email I got since it was from the contact form.

    I did attach some pictures of the problem:

    Either this is a coincidence or they actually looked at the message.
    otherwise, that's pretty cool.

    might have who knows
    Valve is anything but a communicator
    Besides I don't know why they would have done it otherwise

    Apologies, I was misinformed. It is describe-able, however!

    EDIT: Apparently I wasn't misinformed; it is name-able.

    That text color is applied to any item being changed in the description tag menu.

    Presumably what this means is that a demo charge is considered the same as a rocket/sticky jump in that it isn't considered "normal" movement. Makes sense to me.

    According to Valve they read all emails, but don't usually reply to them unless they have a reason to.
    I sent them an email last year about a broken entity and Eric replied.

    I've tried that, but it doesn't apply. Might just be on my end.
