    This update is causing TF2 on OS X to crash immediately when trying to load any map. It's Scream Fortress 2016 all over again!

    Well, that's sure a update. Although I don't think that's the promised/threatened one for this week that's supposed to do some back-end changes for the dedicated server software.

    Really the only time to get hyped up about a release is when the TF2Bot posts something that isn't titled "Team Fortress 2 Update Released", since all major release announcements have their own title, such as Gun Mettle, Tough Break and Meet Your Match. Until then, keep the hype to a minimum.

    Oh, okay, that's what it was. Did some digging and it *is* the toolchain update, it's just optional on the server side right now as a pre-release so server operators can test and make sure their set-ups are working properly.

    "We're working on an optional update for Team Fortress 2. The notes for the update are below. We are tentatively aiming for 4PM PDT (23:00 UTC).


    This update will be making the toolchain beta branch live. This update is known to break numerous server mods, many of which have updates available. In order to reduce the pain with this transition, the update is optional for servers. However, the next mandatory TF update will necessarily end support for the pre-toolchain-update builds, so server administrators should seek to update as soon as possible.


    See the "Updated system requirements for TF2 dedicated servers" thread for more information on the toolchain update."

    Y'know what, this is good.

    Means their working on something, and communicating it clearly with the community.

    Or Gun Mettle. Or Smissmass 2016. Or basically any update between those two.
