Valve has released a new update for Steam that introduces some new functionality and reworks other aspects of the client.

The biggest addition, as reported when a beta version of the update was first released, is configurator support for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and generic X-input controllers. This should make it easier to use a wide variety of controllers with Steam games that otherwise don't include native controller support without resorting to third-party apps.

Also new is the ability to easily move Steam games from right inside the program. As pictured above, the Local Files tab of a game's Properties menu now contains an option to move the installation from one Steam folder (or drive) to another. It was possible to do this previously without re-downloading a game, but the process involved manually moving the folder yourself and then relocating it inside Steam. It wasn't especially intuitive.

Other small adjustments include the "Delete local content" option being renamed "Uninstall," which almost makes me sad after that being the name for so many years. Steam also now has "improved" error messages when there are issues downloading a game or updating files. When in Big Picture mode, there's now support for using the overlay keyboard with games that first open a launcher.

You can check out the full update notes below.
