LFS Livecd outdated?

Is the livecd not suported anymore? I understood from the website that the current stable book and the live cd have/talk about the same files.
I am finding that there are differences. I am using lfslivecd-x86-6.3-r2160.iso for the live cd and LFS-BOOK-6.4.pdf for the book. even the kernel seems different. in the book it says get linux- and the cd has linux-

also where is the book on the cd?

of course you could just use the 6.3 livecd and download 6.4 book and sources
