New update brings better file layout [Updated]

posted by Sun_Tzu,
While there are no new heroes and no new modes in the latest update, a reorganization in order to speed up load times is being implemented, which will cause this weeks update to be slightly larger than normal. Also in the update, besides the usual fixes, are some new capabilities for the WEB API, intended to allow community sites to get some of their operations back which might have been adversely impacted by last weeks API changes.

NOTE: This update has reorganized the file layout of Dota 2 to speed up loading and for future localization support. This will result in a large update and may take a while to download.
