All details about SteamOS
SteamOS is coming on Friday (Dec 13th) and we thought it would be a good time to summarize what we've learned about it so far.

SteamDB Changelog for June 5, 2013
Depots are no longer available through PICS (minus depot 7 and 8), this meant we were stuck with a whole lot of apps that would never get updated again. Old depot pages will display history and what subs they are included in (if available).
We've just updated our backend applications to use Steam's new information requesting system "PICS".
