Newsbrief: Valve has made the SDK for its Steam Link streaming device available for download through GitHub.

Similar to Google's Chromecast dongle, the Steam Link connects a user's PC to their television, letting them access and play their Steam catalog on the big screen. 

The Linux-based SDK allows for the creation of native Link applications, and even features OpenGL ES 2, Qt 5.4, and SDL 2 support. 

As for the device itself, the Link packs a single core ARMv7 processor, which uses the hard-float ABI and runs at 1 GHz, and has approximately 256 MB of available RAM and 500 MB of usable flash storage.
