Valve Releases New SteamOS Beta Update with Linux Kernel 4.14.13, Upgrade Fixes

The SteamOS 2.145 update was pushed earlier today to the Brewmaster Beta channel for public testing, and it comes just one week after the SteamOS 2.141 Beta release to fix some upgrade issues reported by users, as well as to bump the kernel to a new version. SteamOS 2.145 Beta runs the latest Linux 4.14.13 kernel, which includes patches against the Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities, and other security fixes. Valve updated all kernel-related packages to be compatible with Linux kernel 4.14.13.
