The latest version of Android's most popular custom ROM, CyanogenMod, is now available for most of the officially supported Android phones on the CyanogenMod device list. If you know your device's codename, you can download a .zip of the flashable ROM from this page. If you do it that way, be sure you have a copy of the Google Apps zip floating around somewhere - as you'll need to flash it directly after the ROM.

If you don't know your device's name, no worries - just install the ROM Manager app (and ClockworkMod recovery, if you don't have it) on your rooted and unlocked handset and get flashing. Notably, the Motorola DROID X is absent from the list of release devices.

I've pasted the changelog below, but really, if you've been using CyanogenMod 7 for a while now, the only really big change is the bump to Android 2.3.4 (from 2.3.3) - which contains numerous security and bug fixes.
