Any Updates on L4D2 Being Moved to the New Content System?
So as the thread title says, has there been any news of when L4D2 will finally get moved to the new content system so that you can install it on any directory/partition? Quick search of recent, past threads doesn't say anything and I don't believe there's been any mention in official news?

My Steam hard drive died and I don't quite feel like reinstalling and then having to use Steam Mover or symlinking.

1) It's called SteamPipe.
2) Left 4 Dead 2 is on SteamPipe since… it's release. (2009)
3) You can install any game on any (clean and empty) directory for like… half a year already.

Nope, you can only install lfd2 in the default steam location where as TF2 can be installed in any of your steam librarys.

LFD2 beta though, can be installed in a steam library. ♥♥♥♥es me off too that lfd2 is left out.

Well thanks for the official name of the content system...Too bad you're incorrect about L4D2 being on SteamPipe though.

Looks like I'll just help them playtest the new beta for a while.

The only thing I was incorrect about is it being able to be installed on any directory. If a game was installed in common folder by default and/or have .vpk files in it, that means it's on SteamPipe. The thing is, there was no name for that method of content distribution before.
