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.

Those are "stable" version. It is like debian, stable package are not so up to date. If you enable keywords (~x86 or ~amd64) you get gcc 4.3.1, kernel 2.6.26-rc8 and packages like that. If you disable hardmask, you get even more cutting edge stuff.
