SteamOS, a Debian-based distribution developed by Valve to be used in its hybrid PC / console, has received an update for the Beta branch, a couple of fixes, and a new important package. SteamOS features a backported eglibc 2.17 version from Debian testing, various third-party drivers and updated graphics stack (Mesa 10.0.0.1), Linux kernel 3.10.11 (there is no sign that it's going to change anytime soon), and a custom graphics compositor designed to provide a seamless transition between Steam, its games, and the SteamOS system overlay.
