Valve has confirmed it will begin offering Steam users Software titles, with the first wave hitting on 5 September.

"The Software titles coming to Steam range from creativity to productivity. Many of the launch titles will take advantage of popular Steamworks features, such as easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save your work to your personal Steam Cloud space so your files may travel with you," reads the Valve press release.

No specific titles have been confirmed, but more titles will follow after 5 September and Valve has confirmed that "developers will be welcome to submit Software titles via Steam Greenlight".

"The 40 million gamers frequenting Steam are interested in more than playing games," said Valve's Mark Richardson. "They have told us they would like to have more of their software on Steam, so this expansion is in response to those customer requests."
