NMS update on steamdb, but branches still 4 monthes ago


#1

All in the title… what could it be?


#2

weird I’m not really sure


#3

I don’t see anything new?


#4

Don’t see anything new either. Are you talking about the “Old Build” one? It’s been here for ages.


#5

Aware of that. It’s “last record update” section that displays “2 hours ago”


#6

The changenumber changed a few hours ago.

Changenumber

When an application or package changes, Steam sends out a “changelist” to notify all Steam clients that something changed. This changelist has a number, referred to as “changenumber”. This changenumber increments globally and is not a per-app thing.

App and package updates do not even have to be related to the app/package itself as Valve does periodical changes to a batch of apps/packages. For a changenumber to change on an app that hasn’t been active in months, it’s more likely a useless change rather than a sign of life.


#7

All they did was switch the order of two Steam Store tags, nothing special.
