What's a Vanilla version of Baz Luhrmann's AUSTRALIA??

While browsing on Ethai.cd.com I came across Baz Luhrmann's AUSTRALIA with a notation that it's the (Vanilla Version.) What's that all about??? In my dvd travels, especially buying Thai dvds I've never heard this term applied to another Aussie or Non-Aussie film. Anyone know why they applied this term to this dvd set?

It's jargon for the standard version of a piece of software or hardware.

In this case, they sell a Vanilla version with no special features and a Special Edition with extra features.

Vanilla = Plain

I like vanilla, so it's not so plain to me. How about "unsalted" version? Or "shit" version?

I lived in Thailand, vanilla version dvd's means that this is a dvd version that released before the official release date, no subtitle, not fully complete special features, and the suck part is.. It's Thai language dubbed. Cannot change the audio.
