The number of changes since 5.8 was released is massive. Roughly 70% of the userland utilities have gotten the pledge(2) treatment, among many other improvements. When's the last time you saw another OS audit that much of its entire userland in a single six-month release cycle? A few choice ports were also adapted to use it.
Improved GPT and EFI support, enforced kernel W^X on i386, a rewritten less(1) utility, Xen domU goodness, Bay Trail and Broadwell graphics drivers and much more are all just a CD away. You should also see some network improvements, something to expect even more of in the next release.
Hit up openbsdstore.com to order your copy right now! You might even receive the goods before the official release date...
But of course, if CDs aren't your thing, you can always just make a donation to help support the project instead. The stickers are pretty sweet though.
