No the patch isn't out yet (xmastong) but it'll be released in a week or two. Here's the changelog taken from the Seriously! forums (http://forums.seriouszone.com/showthread.php?t=46090):
Sam II 2.066

* added dedicated server support (see DedicatedServer.txt in the patch)
* vertical slider next to some lists (e.g. server list) now reacts to mouse clicks and movement
* server list can now be properly used with the mouse
* fixed scrolling of some lists (levels, profiles)
* swapped function of up/down arrows in some menu screens
* options boxes (yes/no and similar) now cycle options - selecting the last option and going to the 'next' one will go back to the first option and vice versa
* Netricsa icon will no longer appear if subtitles are turned off
* playing with high ping time (>500ms) caused strange things to happen for clients (dying immediately after respawning, being unable to turn off cheats...)
* difficulty setting wasn't properly restored when loading a saved game
* match details menu screen now displays the server version. It will be displayed in RED if the servers version doesn't match the clients
* version number in the main menu is now more visible
* added a beep sound when a new line appears in the chat console
* added support for resolutions with strange aspect ratio (namely, 1280x1024).
* in cooperative games, info for all players (name, health, armor) is displayed on the right part of the screen
* added an option to profile settings ("always pick up items") to disable picking items when not needed (e.g. ammo if already at max ammo)
* servers can now be password protected via the 'net_strConnectPassword' cvar
* to join a password protected server, the client mus set the password string to 'net_strConnectPassword' cvar
* added the 'samListPlayers()' console command to list all players in format 'playerindex: playername'
* bloom effect now works properly in HDR mode on ATI X1000 series boards (no more pixelization)
* added controling compatibility mode for DirectSound mixing ("software emulation" in "audio options" menu)
* fixed problem with sound playback and mouse input on multi-(core-)CPU systems
* fixed wrong performance detection on Intel integrated graphics chips
* fixed wrong profiler timings under dual-core CPUs
* when toggling HDR mode while using FSAA, cfunc 'gfxRestart()' is now required
* weapon can't be changed while recoiling
* added message for recently picked items
* game can't be quick loaded in multiplayer
* fixed jerky movie playback on slower CPUs
* added option to automatically quit the game after demo benchmarking is finished (cvar 'bmk_bAutoQuit=1', best to use it as command line param, "+bmk_bAutoQuit 1")
