Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising Patch Notes

The Dawn of War II Community Website offers work-in-progress notes for the upcoming version 2.2 patch for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising, Relic's recently released RTS expansion (thanks The Patches Scrolls). The notes outline balance changes, but warn that these changes are "on-going, being tested and may not represent the final patch," though "they are fairly comprehensive of the issues we want to address in 2.2." The patch will also include other changes unrelated to game balance, which are not reflected in these notes (though there are several bug fixes noted). With all the warnings dispensed with, the preliminary patch notes follow.

As you know the history of relic, they have a really hard time balancing their games and this is no exception. But I want to see the bug fixes for Last Stand where the Choas sorcerer statistics don't display correctly when equipping certain items. And sometimes when using his abilities, the energy cost is paid but no ability is used. That really sucks.
