The Gentoo Project have announced the release of Gentoo Linux 2008.0.

The new release boasts an updated Live CD installer, the Live CD now using Xfce by default, vastly improved hardware support and many updated packages to bring the core system up to date.

For those new, or who haven't heard of the distribution, Gentoo is generally aimed towards the more experienced Linux user. While it does feature its Portage package management system, Gentoo puts emphasis on building software from source to fully optimise the system and squeeze as much performance as possible from your machine.

You can download many versions of the new release from the official download page.
