After you have read the above documentation, binaries for XFree86 4.8.0 can be found on our ftp and http servers. For those who also desire the 4.8.0 source and source patches, they can be downloaded from our ftp server here.
The 4.8.0 source code can also be obtained directly from our public CVS server under the release tag xf-4_8_0.
Post-release fixes, patches that were applied too late to be included in the 4.8.0. release, if they exist, are on the branch called xf-4_8-branch.
If instead you want to build XFree86 4.8.0 from source, instructions how are in the Build document.
