Yeah me too, i hate it when Devs dont add the changelog to Steam! And its not just ubisoft, loads of devs do it. I think Valve should make it compulsory for devs to add patch noted for every update, i hate having to trawl through various forums to find out what changed.

These are the 1.01 (Day One) patch notes and not the changelog of the new update.

Not sure on the notes, but apparently it fixed the issue with Godrays and Eagle Vision, as well as giving a vertical crossbar to the mouse wheel for tool selection, which means you can now select your throwing knives!

Starting today extra-objectives in Wolfpack don't work for me. I don't really see a better explanation than the new patch.

Yup...same issue for me. Actually the objectives stop counting when it reaches the acrobatic kill part. Nothing counts beyond that point. Also another issue I encountered after downloading the patch (Uplay user) in 6 out of 8 attempts to join a wolfpack session crashed the game at the point where I'm ABOUT to join the session.

i didnt, it autmatically set the resolution from 60hz to 120hz in the options menue.
my monitor is set to 120hz in desktop mode, i guess thats where the game got the info from...

There are a lot of fixes that the patch did helped with, which are not mentioned, like:
* Fixed the bug where God rays are changed back to low when Eagle Vision is activated
* Added selection tool when using scroll wheel so now you can see what items you have in your inventory
* Fixed a bug when you had to lock your computer or press ctrl+alt+del and switch back, to fix the 30 fps lock.
Also I noticed improvement in graphics. I was using MSAA2x because i liked the depth of field it created wich lacked on SMAA, but now SMAA has Depth to. Flickkering shadows and objects seems to be fixed. Ubi FINALLY, did a great job.

TIP: Nvidia users, try rolling back to 331.65 instead of 331.82. Gained 10 fps + on a 560 TI.

Hmmm I can't seem to remove the cap, no matter what I try in the .ini file. It displays the correct refresh rate in the options menu but the fps is still locked when I use fraps or radeonpro (just like with 1.01). My monitor's refresh rate is 108hz but I don't see why that should be a problem, as nearly every game I've played that had 120hz support worked perfectly at 108.

Have you actually tested the fps with FRAPS?
