Surprise! A working iso just in time for nothing at all!

Hi all.  As you are likely aware, the team rushes out isos for every major conference (or dies trying), and often that leaves things in a somewhat imperfect state.  It's almost become a joke in recent years about if the installer will work, or binary drivers, or whatever else.

Well this time, we wanted to do something really special.  We have still been working on isos and publicly posting them, but we skipped that cute little step where we announced things without testing thoroughly.  The DEF CON 23 release was RC 3.8, and today we are announcing RC 4.6.  That is 7 (publicly uploaded) builds (and a few more that were never uploaded and tested only by me) that got tested, and we found bugs worth fixing.  What you can download today, is hopefully the most impressive iso to date.  I won't harp on how it's awesome, or why it's awesome, other than to say we tested things, made some usability improvements, and things just plain work.  Isn't that what you have always wanted out of your livecd?

I'll keep this announcement brief, but baring a major bug this will be your iso for a little while.  There are plans brewing for a fairly major improvement in the next release that is totally hush hush (unless you hang out in irc where I talk about it all the time).  I will give a hint, it is something I have wanted to do for a long time, and now I finally get to.

Enjoy the iso, and as always, please report bugs:

FAQ documentation is wrong.
It says to use changes=/dev/sdXY - this does not work.
Actually you need to use aufs=/dev/sdXY.

Also, when booting from USB, this is rather unworkable because we do not know what the USB drive designation will be when gentoo boots. Is it possible to reference it by LABEL or UUID?
