A new update for the PC version of Portal 2 hit Steam over the weekend.

No major changes have been made but a number of crash-causing bugs have been squashed and a few localisation issues ironed out.

Here are the full patch notes, which should take effect next time you boot up your Steam client:

  • Fixed: Occasional crash after Alt-Tab/minimizing or running in a window on certain graphics hardware
  • Fixed: Crashes and/or graphical glitches after changing video settings without exiting game
  • Fixed: Player stuck at the beginning of Chapter 6
  • Fixed: Crash attempting to use other weapons (e.g. mods) with Portal 2
  • Fixed: Mouse cursor doesn't highlight UI elements in game on Mac OSX
  • Fixed: Numerous localization bugs and improvements (also added Czech and Turkish localized text)
  • Fixed: Overflow bug in keyvalues
  • Fixed: Voice functionality regression (voice again enabled by default)
  • Fixed: Joystick now defaults to off in order to avoid issues with non-joystick hardware that registers itself as a joystick
  • Fixed: French sentences are not wrapping correctly in subtitles and commentary
  • Improved: Handling of Mac OSX crashes
  • Improved: Updates and bug fixes to Robot Enrichment
  • Improved: Reliability on unsupported Intel Mobile Series 4 Express chipsets
  • Removed: Unsupported console commands ("retry", "switch_teams") that caused problems if used
