Well that’s disappointing. I was hoping they would have at least mentioned something about fixing the bug of not allowing Breezehome to get an alchemy table.

I bout that they will be fixing small bugs like that, which requires the level designers to go through. It looks like they have them on dlc while they have a few programmers adding and optimizing. A very good choice in my opinion. If you want a bug free game get it for the PC and download the unofficial skyrim patch.
