    [Holidays]
    – Deployed Holiday Cheer for your festive fragging season.
    – You can spread the Holiday Cheer! Gifts are now available for a limited time.

    [Sound]
    – Added new audio option that enables Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF) processing on in-game sounds. The goal is to vastly improve 360 degree vertical and horizontal sound positioning.
    – By default, Speaker Configuration in Audio Settings has been set to “Headphones with HRTF.” Selecting an alternative speaker configuration will disable HRTF.
    – NOTE: For an optimal experience with HRTF, we recommend turning off any external 5.1 or 7.1 surround audio driver options.

    [Public Lobbies]
    – In the friends panel “Steam Groups” have been renamed to “Public Lobbies”.
    – The “Public Lobbies” tab now shows nearby public lobbies and suggested steam group lobbies in addition to your steam group lobbies.
    – Lobbies now support broadcasting to nearby players. Players can use this setting for friend or steam group lobbies.
    – Steam Group lobbies now display the country associated with the majority of lobby members.

    [Gameplay]
    – Third-person weapon angles now visibly match first-person weapon recoil.

    [MISC]
    – Fixed 5 Year Veteran Coin to be granted to accounts that cancelled and later reactivated their old Counter-Strike license after they restart their CS:GO client.
    – Loading screen tokens can now be localized when loading Overwatch evidence or maps created by community members.
    – Bot names can now be localized in game language.
    – Added experimental plugin support for managing network channel encryption keys on community servers.
