Valve Pushes New Stable Steam Client with Lots of Steam Controller Improvements

Other noteworthy changes include the addition of a button for clearing the local download cache, which should improve the overall download experience, improved support for Xbox One controllers, support for displaying if a certain game was excluded from Family Sharing, and support for spectating VR games when using Steam Link.
