This means that if you didn't have HL2 Deathmatch installed before, it's now required to play. The new engine fixes problems with recording and playing demos and may improve performance overall.

Big file for bugfixes... I wouldn't have minded a smaller 1.06 --> 1.07 file.

It was going to be a smaller 1.065 until I started fixing bugs that were on the server as well. Thus, I decided to make it a full 1.07 release for both client and servers which would mean that anyone with 1.0 could update to it. It's to keep new users from having to download 1.0 -> 1.06 -> 1.07, etc.

The new skinning is almost completely done for all of them. They're now being handed to the animators and will be released once the animations are complete.

Why don't you just do a full release and an incremental patch?
