Just picked up my Physical copy (First Printing) of the Limited Edition Core and while it is a beautiful book it is identical to the Core book PDF (ver 25AUG2019). I thought the Physical release was delayed the last few (okay a little more than a few) weeks to print a copy of the book with those changes listed in the August Errata (ver 29JUL2019)? Was I mistaken on what was to be purchased?

a reprint would take several months to schedule, run, and ship

Those books were on the boat before the hotfix errata existed.

I know it doesn't help you now (sorry), but my advise would be for folks to wait until the next print run following the upcoming large errata document before buying physical copies. PDFs should be safe as those usually get automatically updated for free.

so, can I assume that if I buy the pdf version, it already has the errata fixes included?

From what I recall, people noted part of the hotfix-errata is already in place in the new PDF.
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!

You could assume that.

Chances are, probably not.  CGL has not been great with PDF updates lately, such as the SR5 version of No Future flat out no longer being available on DT.
