Contributed by weerd on from the mexican-standoff dept.
The biggest new feature in this release is the vastly improved suspend and resume support. Thanks to the hard work of certain key developers, most newer laptops (those with ACPI instead of APM) can now be suspended and subsequently brought back to life. As usual, many other improvements have been made, the plus48 page lists them all.

Subject: OpenBSD 4.8 pre-orders are up From: Theo de Raadt
To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: 2010-09-08 19:52:27 OpenBSD 4.8 can now be pre-ordered. The release date will be Nov 1. As usual, the CDs will ship a bit before the official release. http://www.openbsd.org/48.html Some of the webpage content does not yet show what is coming in 4.8. Please be patient with us as we try to add those details. (Many of you already know the real shining achievement for the release is suspend-resume for ACPI-based laptops, but there are many other things). Pre-orders are up at the North American order site, as well as the European site: http://www.openbsd.org/orders.html or directly to: https://https.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/order http://www.openbsdeurope.com/ This release has no tshirt. The main reason is that the release artwork didn't go nicely onto a tshirt which could "stand on it's own"; we also failed to design a non-release related piece of art as an alternative. We would be very happy if people bought some of the older tshirts though! Next release, there will be a tshirt again. I am also making the song available at the same time. As usual, that page contains a taste of the release artwork. http://www.openbsd.org/lyrics.html
