Left 4 Dead 2 has been patched with updates which apply to both the Windows and Linux versions of the zombie infested shooter. One of the bigger fixes is to a Jockey exploit, the bastard, which will no longer allow players to insta-kill him when shoving the jerk mid leap. Other fixes include restoring sounds and the like. The full thing is posted below courtesy of PCgamesN. As usual, the patch will apply when you fire up Steam.
