Gamebanshee  posts the latest links for the unofficial Arcanum patch along with some notes:

Here we go. I've put a lot of work into this one, spend a lot of hours tracking and fixing bugs, finding and restoring lost content. The main feature of this release is that sprite mirroring is disabled. I was very interested in this matter from the very beginning, I even contacted Leonard Boyarsky this week (and he was kind enough to forward my question to Tim Cain, those guys are really amazing), and in the end, encouraged by Tim Cain's words I hacked the engine myself. Basically, the number of animations is now almost doubled, near 200 mb of disabled animations are back. Without any kidding, this is the most important and revolutionary update to Arcanum since its release back in 2001.

Note that the patch is designed to work with a vanilla English version of the game, patched to It's recommended that a new game be started, and that no mods be installed as the patch is not compatible with them.

The cd check has been removed and the full changelog can be obtained here  at Computergames.ro as well as the download which is also available at  GamersHell and Rapidshare.
