Gentoo The 2008.0 final release is out! Code-named "It's got what plants crave," this release contains numerous new features including an updated installer, improved hardware support, a complete rework of profiles, and a move to Xfce instead of GNOME on the LiveCD. LiveDVDs are not available for x86 or amd64, although they may become available in the future. The 2008.0 release also includes updated versions of many packages already available in your ebuild tree.

Congrats. Although, I like to use Sabayon for installing Gentoo. It takes a little longer to boot up but its nice having a more complete environment to install from.

Having new install CDs is pretty meaningless with Gentoo. The real news here is that the 2008 profile is available which I have been using for quite some time now anyway.

I installed a 2007 profile on my laptop and it didn't work out so nice. Someone recommended to me to use 2008 since I was using amd64. It seems cleaner and things just work.
