The Mobipocket format has a version number. The highest version number I've seen for that is 7. So I think that's why it's 8.
This new format will actually give Amazon four supported file formats.
1. Mobipocket (Modified HTML 3.2 in a Palm Doc wrapper)
2. Topaz (which is completely different to any other format)
3. Print Replica (PDF in a Palm Doc wrapper)
4. KF8 (Modified HTML5/CSS2 in ?)
