A new, very small Steam Deck Client update was released yesterday to fix some rare bugs and on-screen keyboard issues. Altogether, there are only four bug fixes, it is still great to see improvements happening regardless of the quantity. There are two on-screen keyboard bug fixes to stop it from disappearing or misbehaving, while there was a rare crash fixed when streaming from remote play. The D-pad will also be responding fine again on some external controllers.
