Bethesda has uploaded to Steam a new Beta Update for Skyrim (1.4.26) which includes fixes that synergize with the new Skyrim Workshop. Within the patch notes posted on the Bethesda Blog was an incomplete bullet point that stated:

“with new PC-specific optimizations that includes new”

However, this entry was quickly deleted after the blog was posted, leaving us to wonder whether this was an accidental hint at an upcoming feature or simply an error.

Here are the full patch notes:

UPDATE 1.4.26


  • Fixed issue with downloading mods when you are subscribed to more than 50 mods
  • Fixed crash when loading a subscribed mod that has been removed from Workshop by the author
  • Mod load order functionality


  • Fixed occasional crashes when loading a save that relies on plugins/master files that no longer exist
  • Fixed issue where controls would become unresponsive while charging an enchanted weapon
  • Fixed issue where controls would occasionally become unresponsive while switching from third to first person while using the Arcane Enchanter
  • Fixed issue where controls would become unresponsive if activating a crafting station with autorun active
  • Fixed issue where keyboard would fail if Rename Item was selected before choosing the number of charges, while using Arcane Enchanter
  • Fixed several issues with remapping buttons while using an Xbox 360 controller
  • Fixed issue where pressing Escape button after fast traveling but before the loading would cause certain menus to stop working properly

Head over to the Bethesda Blog for instructions on installing the update.
