Team Fortress 2 Update Released

Updates to Team Fortress 2 have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The specific changes include:

Team Fortress 2

  • Added new option for medigun beam to the Multiplayer->Advanced dialog. If on, the medigun beam will stay attached to the current target without the need to hold down the fire button
  • Added new option for the sniper rifle to the Multiplayer->Advanced dialog. If disabled, the sniper rifle won't re-zoom after firing a zoomed shot
  • Added "nextlevel" server cvar. If set to a valid map name, server will change to that map during the next changelevel
  • Fixed PerfUI being used as a type of wall-hack on servers without sv_cheats set to 1
  • Reduced Granary spawn advantage for capping the middle point
  • Fixed players turning into "Scout" model after lagouts (and a variety of related issues, such as disappearing doors)
  • Fixed obscure crash related to resolution changing
  • Gave machinima creators access to "tf_testvcd" and "tf_testrr" commands for playing scenes on characters
  • SDK Launcher now has a drop list of engine versions in addition to a drop list of games/mods. This eliminates the need to specify engine version as a launch option
Please note that this update is only available via Steam.

Nah. It hangs on "sending client info". It is not downloading anything. A google search reveals other people are having this problem but no solutions have been found. I've also submitted a bug report through TF2 but no response.

I have the same problem as you. I'm glad I'm not the only one!

First I join a server that I don't want to play on and wait for it to hang on the "sending client info" message. I then click cancel and connect to the server that I want to play on. It usually connects fairly quickly and doesn't hang on the "sending client info" message.
