The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has received patch v1.1, which adds a few tweaks to the game itself but brings something much more important -- the execution of DRM restrictions. 

The game's DRM-free status was a big selling point, but you only got that if you bought it from GOG. If bought from anywhere else, anti-piracy measures were quite ensconced, and also responsible for a number of performance issues. Until now. 

"We felt keeping the DRM would mainly hurt our legitimate users," said CD Projekt's Adam Badowski. "This is completely in line with what we said before the release of The Witcher 2. We felt DRM was necessary to prevent the game being pirated and leaked before release. This purpose has been served, so we are pleased to let our users enjoy the full freedom of game usage they deserve.”

The update adds support for the DLC quest "Troll Trouble," as well as general fixes to framerate, stability and activation. The Steam patch has generated a bit of controversy, since it's apparently nine gigabytes big.
