New Client broken - no Horizons?

UPDATE: Steam just dropped a really small update and now the launcher works again.
One issue: It no longer asks for my password once the launcher comes up. For security reasons I always prefer that it ask for this. How do I undo the "already-logged you in" feature?
 
Just had to install new client and have the old orange launcher with no Horizons option. Bug or have I got an issue?

Seems to have been fixed now.🕹
Nope. Fun update. Premium beta backer here. Just been forced to update launcher both on Steam and off. Off Steam I can launch Horizons, but with faulty launcher (http 404 error):

And I am unable to launch from steam at all:

I have an older steam purchase also Horizons and could not get past the update message on the steam launcher until a couple of minutes ago. I reloaded the game twice a couple of days ago to no avail. I just fixed my problem by accessing the game via Frontier launcher thru the EDLaunch.exe file in the steam folder. I had to log in and the multi option launcher came up with an UPGRADE button beside Elite Dangerous, and a PLAY button beside Horizons. I clicked the UPGRADE button and it seemed to reload the game or at least syc files, only took a couple of minutes, and then the PLAY button appeared. I am now able to access all options of the game via Steam. Not sure whether I could have just reloaded the game again in Steam and the same thing would have happened. Also not sure why the game had not updated in Steam. One note of caution, I actually tried clicking on the UPGRADE button on the Frontier launcher a day or so ago and nothing happened, maybe a server issue?

Hopefully someone will find this ramble useful:).

Paige, received the update yesterday on Steam, clicking play fires up the launcher, thanks. One issue is that it no longer asks for my password. Is that normal?
 
Glad I found this thread.

I traveled on Sunday to my apartment, where I play on my second account. I've been working since I arrived to update, but it seems to just get stuck after a few minutes and it looks like the same files just keep trying to re-write, but ultimately make no substantial progress.

This morning I did a complete un-install of the launcher and deleted all game directories/files (and yes, I know where they all are).

After a re-start, I did a fresh download of the launcher and I am currently watching a clean install that seems to be having no better luck and looks to be stalled at about 40% on the Sync files progress bar.

I'm wondering what I will run into on my primary account when I return home this weekend...

Just tested my connection and it's hitting 300/30 as it should , yet launcher is only at 1.60MB/s

Not good
