Special features include everything from site navigation to multi-language support—with easy site deployment options provided by Hugo. We also created guidance on how to add additional pages, structure your documentation, and accept community contributions, all with the goal of letting you focus on creating great content."

Valve has launched Steam Labs, which gives users a peek at new experiments in development. According to TechCrunch, "Valve is quick to point out that all of these experiments are just that—there's no promising that any of the stuff that hits the Labs will make it all the way to the official client. They also say that even 'Steam Labs is itself an experiment', which will probably change and evolve a bunch over time." The first three experiments on Steam Labs are Micro Trailers, Interactive Recommender and Automatic Show.
