The patch notes via the Arc System Works' website
have been kindly translated by Dustloop member Suzaku
and shared here with us.
Most notably, Arc Sys states that all previous bugs in the AC+ version of the game have been addressed (ie: Eddie Glitch, Random Music Glitch, Missing songs, ect...) and that the team will continue to update the game and correct any glitches/bugs which may arise in the future. Secondly, there seems to be no official mention of any improvement/tweaking of the existing netcode, so the quality of online play in this build is subject to information and testing gathered upon release.
The rest of the official change notes are as follows:
Addition of latest game tuning version Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R, currently available in arcades, along with its game tuning version are added. Check below for details.
Usability Improvements Operability and usability improvements have been implemented. Check below for details.
Cumulative Bug Fix Bugs confirmed since release have been fixed.
