As far as I know the DVD you're talking about is exactly the same movie as the previous release of the director's cut - Warner just repackaged it along with a few nice pictures to 'clear the shelves' in preparation for the 'real' special edition, which is about 18 months overdue by me reckoning.

The 'real' special edition will be special - we're all hoping for 3 different versions of the movie (including the work print). Real news about the release date is scarce - I'm not even sure if they're still editing it or whether it's done and they're waiting the legal people to catch up (Blade Runner has had a long history of 'ownership' problems).

You can find lot's of discussion about this long awaited DVD in these forums...
