Please understand that there are many asynchronous events going on and  
it will take some time for the dust to settle. Be patient while all of  
these things come together. The WEB pages are are still in flux and  
the MacTeX-2008 distribution is also slowly propagating around the  
world. Waiting a day or two, well maybe up to a week for some CTAN  
servers, isn't going to hurt.

Good Luck,
