Valve Working On Source SDK Update to Bring Mods to OS X

Steam for Mac is doing great (the latest updates should have fixed the few bugs we encountered with first release for Mac) and users seems to be very satisfied with the performance of the platform on their Macbooks. Still, there's one big feature missing: an update to the Source SDK to compile mods for OS X.

As you can see from the screenshot after the break that's exactly what Alfred Reynolds (software developer at Valve) is confirming: "a code update so you can compile your mods for OSX". This should bring the whole Steam / Source platform at the same level of Windows' one, and we've got the feeling this update will be out by the WWDC.
