To my mind, making Steam for Linux compatible with 64 bit is the best improvement ever.

Steam For Linux Finally Made 64 Bit System Compatible

This is a full list of improvements:

  • Added support for 64-bit Linux titles
  • Added a “friendly machine name” when Steam-Guarding an account
  • Changed data format of client updates to improve compatibility with flawed proxy servers.
  • During login, if Steam can’t be reached and the user has entered a username we’ve never seen before, pop a dialog and ask them to login again
  • When returning to the login dialog and we’ve cleared the username field, put the keyboard focus on the empty username box instead of the password box
  • Fixed failing to update a game properly if an unexpected folder exists in the install directory for a game and we want to replace it with a new file
  • Fixed finding Steam client skins on Linux
  • Fixed crash looking at community images on Linux
  • Fixed Linux Steam overlay not restoring the proper mouse cursor in certain situations
  • Fixed focus issue with the startup UI when the intro movie terminates early
  • The play button on a games library page is now disabled if the game is not available on your platform
  • Fixed updating background images in the library details view even when not visible while a game is running
  • Fixed regression in prior update that made the Web/Friends footer buttons not appear in the in-game overlay on startup
