The release notes for April's EA (1.99.97), which has just been released, mention a RSS feed for the advertiser extensions will be provided, but if you're quick in updating GM you may wonder where these demos are. This will be coming shortly - we're packaging the feed resources and doing some final bits of commentting/formatting on the demos themselves.
Please note that these demos are only intended to be used with EA97 and later versions of GM: S, so running them in older versions will very likely result in an error about duplicate definitions (depends on which older version you're using) and almost certainly won't work.

Update: 24th April. Our friends over at Steam have swiftly responded with a fix to the issue which is now available on the Steam beta channel.
If you are already on the beta channel, simply accept today's Steam update. If you are not already on the Steam beta channel, please change your setting to join the beta channel via the steam application's menu bar and choosing Settings. When you click on the button highlighted in the image you will be shown another window, simply expand the drop-down and select Steam Beta. Steam will then locate and apply the new update.
If you would like a bit more info on the Beta channel and the other changes this version brings, please seehttp://steamcommunity.com/groups/SteamClientBeta#announcements/detail/1697039065109574114
For Steam's own guide on how to change to the Beta channel, please see http://steamcommunity.com/groups/SteamClientBeta/discussions/1/864957817328247556/
This is caused by running the latest Steam client release, know as API v14 (2nd April 2014 on Beta, 22nd April on Stable). To clarify, this means the actual Steam application, not GameMaker, and can be reproduced in all versions of GameMaker: Studio on Steam.
If your Help > "About Steam" looks like the following image you have updated your Steam client to the version in question:
At the moment you will not be able to safely call many external tools for tasks such as building Android apk's, running anything on Mac/Ubuntu, building for Tizen, etc. It also prevents you from accessing/updating Windows 8 licenses in file > preferences. This is because the Steam overlay .dll is injecting additional information about system processes into the call to the external tool. The tool then can't process this information and is unable to work successfully.
