Valve has released a new update for its classic (and now Mac available) FPS Counter-Strike: Source, now available for download on Steam.

The patch brings fixes for several issues relating to missing textures in community maps with back-end changes and additions alongside. Some engine fixes and a Linux Dedicated Server patch-up as well.

The title is also all up in the Steam mega sale going on through July 4, running 33% off its standard $20 tag taking it down to just $13.39. From the change log:

Counter-Strike: Source

  • Fixed several problems with missing textures in community maps.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when stats get updated.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when displaying the scoreboard.
  • Added “cl_show_achievement_popups”, a convar that is on by default. Turning it off disables in-game achievement announcements.
  • Restricted the range of commands that servers can cause clients to execute when closing the MOTD.
  • Server admins will need to change the “cmd” key from a string to one of the following ints:

0 for no command

1 for joingame

2 for changeteam

3 for impulse 101

4 for mapinfo

5 for closed_htmlpage

6 for chooseteam

Engine

  • Fixed an exploit that allowed a plug-in to be loaded as a .dll file on the client after being downloaded from the server.
  • Missed from last update:

Removed an exploit that allowed players to change their in-game name outside of the Steam Community

Linux Dedicated Server

  • Fixed srcds_run so -autoupdate works properly for Counter-Strike: Source
