I see they finally fixed badges with no cards or future drops showing up on the main badge page. That kinda annoyed me. Glad its no more!

Can we get bigger icons for list view. 32px instead of 16px.

@Pooka Mustard, the reason why you most of the time you can only download one game at a time because of how the new ACF system works. Basically since it works in a diff-based patching way, it takes more resources on downloading and extracting at the same time, rather than just to download it like before.

ACF based games are downloaded at half of its size and constantly decompressed as you get the data. So that's definitely too demanding for a lower end hardware, and definitely an overkill if two games are getting processed like this. Of course this is not a problem for high end systems, but I bet it's mostly because some games are being processed into the same ACF patching destination (Like Half-Life 2 and its expansions).

Did you really fixed the bug? http://heise.de/-1979143

There is no information about that in the changelog

Also, to help with the new download interface:
-Icons are smaller in width; which means that I won't be able to see the game's full banner. I noticed that with a Civilization V update today.
-While overall download rate interface doesn't matter with me as Steam only downloads one game at a time for some reason, it still hurts to those with uber connections who can download two or more games at any given time.
-The interface doesn't even look polished.
-I think more improvements to the downloader is better than more improvements to the download interface, though I still think it should be rightful to put a percentage counter in the interface rather than keep it limited to the taskbar icon and the sick Big Picture with its big button.

I'm sick of Big Picture Mode's existence. Only thing it does on my machine is make FULLY supported controller games work with any controller that isn't the darn X360 controller, but that's about it. I'd rather have it ditched along with all Steam machines and Steam OS, and focus on the client, than to make new gimmicks.

Guys, this is just an update post, not the request topic:)

Conversely, I never use Big Picture, and I'm really sick of accidentally triggering it when I try to grab the Steam window in the previously-empty spot, or when accidentally pressing the home/middle button on a controller. Would be extremely nice to have a way to completely disable it (or at least limit it to a item in the menus).
