MathLink hasn't significantly changed or added any substantial new interfaces
for v8.  But what is interesting on this front is that the kernel can now
directly access external shared libraries.  The main body of information is
linked to from here...

Other new features related to this functionality include support for CUDA and
OpenCL programming, support for building C code generators and a pre-built
generator for Compiled functions, and an extensive set of compiler drivers which
allow Mathematica to automate C code compilation using your installed compilers. 
And probably other things, too...I wasn't personally involved in this project
and have only nibbled around its edges.
