No, this is for the review version, it sounds like this is a compilation of most of the beta patches. Considering how much the game has improved over the last month I hope reviewers are understanding and aren't too harsh on Larian for not being a huge publisher.

Too harsh? This game will do well.

I'm certain of it.

Interesting spoiler though. I'm excited that there will be some interesting single player only changes to spice things up. I'm also curious as to what they are doing for DLC now that it's confirmed.

Edit: I'm an idiot and forgot about the pre-order bonus. I guess there is no mention for DLC beyond that.

In terms of DLC, there's the Imperial Edition content (a dragon skin and a world map), along with the Silverfire jetpack from the promotion they did a long time ago (so old that it's still on the old DC site) and the golden jetpack from the Divinity Anthology.
