    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:
    • Improved Steam Voice support for servers that have enabled it
      • Removed sv_use_steam_voice convar. Steam voice is now selected via "sv_voicecodec steam"
      • Fixed demos not properly recording Steam Voice status, resulting in potential corrupt voice in demos with differing default settings
      • Will now use the native Steam Voice sampling rate, instead of clamping to 11kHz
      • Improved compatibility with Steam client beta
    • Fixed OS X voice communication sounding high-pitched when using the default CELT voice codec
    • Fixed an animation bug that would cause the client and server hitboxes to become out of sync
    • Fixed the Scout not playing the correct animation when using the Shortstop's Alt-Fire to shove someone
    • Fixed some missing VO sounds for the Scout when he picks up a baseball
    • Fixed Spectators seeing the fake death notices for the Spy when he feigns death
    • Fixed the Widowmaker not doing increased damage when the Sentry's target is a building, boss, or tank
    • Fixed not earning Crikey meter progress with The Cleaner's Carbine when damaging a building, boss, or tank
    • Fixed the Scout not getting assists for shoving players while using the Shortstop
    • Fixed not being able to use non-tradable Giftapults
    • Fixed powerups sometimes being removed from the game in Mannpower mode
    • Fixed a case where the scoreboard would not update properly when players volunteer to switch teams in Casual mode
    • Fixed a case where Casual servers would spontaneously terminate with "Server shutting down" upon losing connection with the matchmaking service
    • Updated the logic used to pick the maps players can vote on in the end-of-match map vote on Casual servers to help maintain healthier game mode representation across regions
      • Casual servers were often rotating to unrelated game modes during votes, resulting in partially filled servers in certain regions
    • Updated the player_bodygroups that are hidden when equipping The Dark Falkirk Helm and The Sole Saviors
    • Updated the model/materials for The Snowmann to fix some LOD issues
    • Updated the localization files
    • Added Gift Wrap back to the Mann Co. Store at a reduced price
    • Added TF2Maps 72hr TF2Jam Winter Participant 2017 community medal
    • Added Rally Call Charity Tournament community medals
    • Added ozfortress Season 18 tournament medals
    • Added new survey questions to the end-of-match survey for Casual and Competitive modes and fixed a bug where multiple surveys could be displayed at the same time

    This was a big one! Really nice to see. If anyone can get a screenshot of the new end of match survey questions, that would be great.

    "- Fixed an animation bug that would cause the client and server hitboxes to become out of sync" is a pretty major fix for TF2. Apparently since launch if you changed between some classes your character model and hit box would be slightly out of sync. You can see a video of it here:

    So many fixes. But, to OS X players, did they fix their horrible memory management as well?
