Is now released.

Mirrors are a little sparse, but I'll add some once I find some. At the moment, there's only 1, so you'll be waiting a long long time in a queue.

There's no incremental patch, so the full one weighs in at a hefty 591.28 mb.

Lol. Just my fucking luck. I download 700 megs of DC files and a day later they bring out a totally new one with no incremental. Time to get downloading again I guess. :\

Btw what is a torrent?
