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.

The real news is not the livecd nor the new profile. You can install gentoo with almost any livecd. The new release was needed in order to start building your gentoo from an updated environment: using a stage3 with expat-1 (just to name one) was a PITA due to ABI breakage with expat-2.

I usually only install x86 or amd64 arches so for that you can use drobbins stages [1]. New ones are released quite often.
