From Interlopers.net:

The promised beta SDK from valve is out now. The update adds lots of new functions to
Hammer, and also enables the long awaited Dod:Source SDK.

Be sure to check it out, the new functions in Hammer are really useful and include:

- Complete HDR support
- Autosaving
- 2D wireframe view for models
- New model browser
- Scaling texture lock
- Model fade preview

Be sure to check these (and many more) functions out in the beta SDK.
You can activate the beta SDK by adding "-beta sdk" to your steam shortcut, eg.

"C:\program files\steam\steam.exe" -beta sdk

Be warned this is still beta software and thus may give you errors or loss of functionality.
Use it at your own risk. Be sure to backup your sourcesdk.gcf in case you need to revert
to the old SDK. Some settings in Hammer will be overwritten.

Reading on the DoD forums, it seems to be a little buggy and apparently there's a HUGE memory leak that needs to be fixed. I'm not going to switch over yet, personally, but I thought I'd post this up anyways. It certainly, if anything, shows progress!

Yeah this is definately a step in the right direction. I know there are MANY maps waiting for this so they can be released.
Thanks for the update!
