Fixed key-searching so you can now press a key to jump the first server that starts with the letter you typed. You can also type a word and will be taken to the first server that starts with the word you typed.

Added Half-Life Steam support. This can be turned on and off. When on, only Steam servers will be downloaded when using Find Internet Games. When off, only non-Steam servers will be downloaded when using Find Internet Games.

Added a Steam icon column to indicate if a server requires Steam to connect to it. Servers requiring steam will automatically use the Steam client when connecting, servers without will use your normal Half-Life client to provide backwords compatibility.

Downloaded server modifications now provide Steam command-line parameters to properly connect to Steam servers.

QtUplink: Added support for: Painkiller, Unreal Tournament 2004, and Unreal 2 XMP.

Renamed "suspend" operation to "pause".

Re-worded and re-arranged View->Settings->Games screen to make it easier to use and understand.

Added "Ping servers using ICMP" checkbox to View->Settings->Pings. When disabled, the pinging pass will not occur when refreshing servers or using Find Internet Games. Users who rely on response time over ping, or don't care about pings, will want to disabling pinging.

When refreshing, if you choose Find Internet Games, refreshing will be cancelled in favor of Find Internet Games.

Find Internet Games can now be cancelled during any step (retrieval, loading, querying, ping countdown, pinging).

Cancelling Find Internet Games will no longer result in the ping countdown which would have to be cancelled too.

New columns added in future releases will be inserted into the leftmost column position.

Now properly set column order on first-time usage.
