New Japanese Scream - Director's Cut???

I was wondering if the new japanese scream DVD includes the Director's Cut. I wrote CD Japan and they said that their information states that it is the Director's Cut, but they don't know for sure. I know that the old Scream release had both versions on it. Did anybody buy the new japanese Scream DVD that came out 02/21/03?? If yes, which Version of scream is on the new DVD.

Thanks,
Dirk

It appears to be the same release (with both cuts on the one disc), the only difference is that it used to come in a jewel-case but is now in a keepcase.

Bah! And the transfer isn't up to snuff on that release, correct?

It's not terrible by any means, but is not great either. To accomodate both cuts on a dvd-9 they have reduced the DD bitrate to 320kbps and it suffers as a result.
The best version I've seen on dvd would have to be the region 4 which has the best picture and a DTS track, but is only the theatrical version unfortunately.
