#1 CS:GO update for 2/12/19 (2/13/19 UTC, 1.36.7.8) in CSGO General Discussion

Via the CS:GO blog:

Valve[MISC]
– Fixed the ‘radar spotting enemies through smoke’ mechanic to behave the same regardless of the game server tickrate, and to not reveal enemies on the opposite side of the smoke until the smoke effect dissipates.
– Increased size of rendering queues for OSX and Linux game clients to address crashes when playing Danger Zone.

Rumor has it:

- All the rest of the update consists of is last-minute preparations for the start of IEM Katowice 2019 as well as more localization file updates made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You

#1 CS:GO update for 2/11/19 (2/12/19 UTC, 1.36.7.7) in CSGO General Discussion

Via the CS:GO blog:

Valve[ Katowice 2019 ]
-Fixed Pick’Em management WebAPIs to provide a list of ItemIDs that can be used when uploading user predictions.
-Fixed GOTV+ playcast sometimes getting stuck on a loading screen when retrying dropped fragments or exceeding download bandwidth.
-Several fixes for intermittent UI problems when managing Katowice 2019 Pick’Em predictions.
-Fixed some javascript exceptions.
-Fixed Pick’Em refresh state getting stuck on loading.

Rumor has it:

- With a bit over 24 hours to go before the first phase of Pick'Em locks, there continues to remain no way to directly gift an IEM Katowice 2019 Viewer Pass to a Steam friend, be it in-game or through the Steam store

- Other than the above listed changes and other last-minute preparations like the addition of the IEM Katowice logo for GOTV and a few new strings for the Watch tab, the rest of the update consists of localization file updates, which are made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You

#1 OPTIONAL CS:GO update for 2/7/19 (2/8/19 UTC) in CSGO General Discussion

Via the new csgo_servers:

Vitaliy GenkinAn optional stability update for CS:GO has been released with PatchVersion=1.36.7.6 and ServerVersion=860.

Rumor has it:

- There is also a small set of translations in Spanish (including Latin American Spanish), Russian, Portuguese, Norwegian, Finnish, Italian, and Thai, made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You: https://github.com/SteamDatabase/GameTracking-CSGO/commit/576f294490f2d9402df825930093312c19ae50df

- Wait, what, the new csgo_servers? If you missed the email Valve sent you, they've tossed out their self-hosted GNU Mailman box that the csgo_servers mailing list was on (and the HLDS lists for TF2 and CS:S users), in favor of a cloud provider (Simplelists). If you were previously a subscriber to the old list, you must resubscribe to csgo_servers to continue getting messages
- If you tried to sign up in the first hour or so when the switch happened several months ago but weren't able to due to subscription limits, you should be able to try again successfully

- Not necessarily a part of this update, but you may wanna know that the IEM Katowice 2019 Viewer Pass can now be bought on the Steam store
- Unfortunately, "add to cart" does not add it to your cart, you'll be taken straight to checkout right away, which means there remains no option for those of you that want to gift one to a friend without needing to wait for the 7 day trade restriction after purchase to expire
