No, the release should be the same as the last beta, just with some additional messaging for error conditions.
"Known issues:

And what's the workaround for that? Not every game has an option to turn it off. Also playing without rumble takes off some of the fun.

We are trying to find how to reduce CPU spike during rumbling. It could be fixed soon.

Sorry, we don't have a plan to support DS3. In 2016 TV, only DS4 can be supported.
Any plans for HDR support in the future?

Should wake-on-lan work? I can wake up my computer when sending magic packet from the router but not from the app.

Hi Mikko,
Wake on Lan is supported from application on Samsung TV. Could you please explain the environment in brief?

Hi, this is the setup
-host win10 64bit
-client Samsung ks9000 with latest fw 1201.6 and steam app 1.0.1 (2017.08.04)
-everything running wired through Asus rt-ac3200 router

Everything works smoothly when the host is turned on. Wake-on-lan through the steam app is not working but it works when I use the routers GUI from my htpc to send the magic packet. More details I should inform?

Works like a charm!. remember to unplug the TV for 3 seconds in order for the app to detect your Steam PC! I would like to see 4K support but with 1080p already being 17ms display lag I'm not sure it would work very well, we'll see.
