I must be a Willie Sausagehead because I am confused. Is this a fanedit (for sale?), an official release or both?

It's an official Blu-ray release of "Waterworld" that includes multiple cuts, including the "Ulysses Cut" fanedit.

It's an official release. It seems to be pretty much an official version of the fan edit, which was just restoring the censored scenes to the extended TV cut anyway if I'm not mistaken.

I got the set last week but haven't got around to watching it yet. This is all the info that the packaging has on the Ulysses Cut (beyond what it says on the Amazon listing):

Wow! So that particular fanedit is legendary. I can't wait to watch it. I always felt that movie was better than all of the backlash. I did drag on and have major plot holes.

So now that this edit is getting an official release, does that mean that it is now the company's property, making it illegal to trade the edit without buying the new release?

Yes.

Well, "illegal" can mean lots of things.  But as far as this site is concerned, you must buy the new release.  There's no reason to download the edit anymore unless you're ok with piracy, which we are not.

If you have any further concerns on this matter (speaking to everyone now), consult the Own The Source rule, and then PM a staff member if needed.  Further discussion of the rules in this thread is not permitted.

I was just curious, I wasn't going to try to fight the rules or argue or complain or anything, just curious. I'll drop it then.

I watched the new Arrow-Video restored 3-hour "Ulysses" cut this evening. 99% of it looks like stunning detailed HD and I was wondering where all the "unfinished" shots were? It's only until the very last part when a few dodgy looking shots creep in and then there is a whole minute that looks like upscaled cr*p going into the epilogue.

I saw the Theatrical Cut at the cinema in 1995 and like most people I was disappointed it wasn't as good as, or anything like 'Mad Max 2' as one might've expected from the promotional material and premise. I remember not liking the Dennis Hopper centered scenes and in this longer cut, I liked them even less. The character scenes between the three main characters are captivating and the parts where The Mariner is going full Errol Flynn and showing what a proficient badass he is are thrilling. Whenever the film moves away from those two successful elements, it grinds to a halt.

The opening FX shot where you see the world's land masses swallowed up by the melting ice-caps seems a whole lot less like fantasy in 2019.

Definitely some great fanedit potential here.
