There were as always lots of improvements since the 4.7 release, including work on ACPI suspend/resume and the new mandoc(1) (a more complete list can be found here). We need users to help test all parts of OpenBSD. Please report any critical bugs and problems you can find so we can release a fully functional and stable OpenBSD 4.8.

1) GCC 4 - crucial for porting new platforms, also performance gains cause of better optimizations (if they will be used).
2) LDAP in base - if it will leads to OpenBSD custom schemas for storing configurations and daemons states, the it'll be great... in combination with LDAP replication... valuable for failover setups.
