Looking to get new software greenlit on Steam's new community service? Well, thanks to Valve the Greenlight project will now house software and software design concepts to help bring developers and their ideas even closer yet to consumers, users and fans.

As stated in the press release...
developers of games or software that are early in their development or creative process can now post their early work to start building a community and getting feedback from prospective customers. Concepts can be posted for free, but the voting on these items serves only to give the developer data and feedback and does not lead toward getting the game distributed on Steam.

Valve launched both the Greenlight project and the new software section on Steam this September, enabling gamers to find new games with ease, for developers to bring their games to gamers with ease, and for software developers to make middleware and design tools reach their audience with a few simple clicks.

If you're into the design scene and you're looking to throw some concepts around you can do so for free right now on the Greenlight page. You can check out some of the features for the new concept and software function for Greenlight below or visit Steam Greenlight to learn more.
