People have been talking about it for a while, and it appears as though it is finally here. Convekta has all the details for you on their site. Some of the highlights include the Tiger 2004 engine, new search capabilities and  a new opening tables viewing mode. The latter is good for distilling the large amount of chess tree data that Chess Assistant provides.

I have been told that pressed CDs and DVDs will be arriving from the factory next week. Delays may always occur, but I have every reason to believe that the above estimate holds true. A review of Chess Assistant 8 is forthcoming over the next few weeks.

Here is some more info:
