It's on the TF2 blog but it applies to Steam as a whole.

It's a neat concept: You can now trade items from numerous games as well as games themselves. Currently the beta only supports TF2 items and Steam games, but they plan to add Portal 2 into the mix soon and are already contacting other devs to see if they want to be a part of it.

With this we can now trade TF2 items without ever launching the game, can trade items from different games for each other (For example, I can trade you a co-op skin in Portal 2 for a hat in TF2 and the trade would automatically happen in the Steam Cloud) or even trade in-game items for actual Steam games, if you can find someone willing to make the trade.

Nice concept, and one that really highlights why having a central platform such as Steam has it's uses. If they can set a standard with other publishers, I can see this taking off easily!

And hey, if that allows me to trade away some of my unplayed Steam games...

As of now only gifted games can be traded away, but Valve actually has said they'd like to experiment with "used" digital games a while back so gifting used games sounds like a possibility after this gets sorted out.
