They have put out a few supplements since then, but if all you own is the base set, anything invented, or any words that have radically shifted, in the past thirty years is not going to be addressed. It's excellent as a literary dictionary, but I own another dictionary (Merriam-Webster 3rd Unabridged) for scientific words and so on.
The text on the CD-ROM comprises the full text of the OED 2nd Edition, plus the three Additions volumes, as well as 7,000 new entries from the OED 's continuing research.
