Guys... Please think very carefully and research before upgrading to 4.4.2. In my personal opinion it is infact a downgrade. A few things work better. But many features, such as multiwindow, allowed triggers on automateit app, become worse. Further there is no point of such a large notification panel. Finally, once you upgrade, you cannot downgrade or flash a new ROM.
I am regretting that I upgraded my device, and I will gladly trade my 4.4.2 device with someone who's device still runs 4.1.2 ...
Can anyone tell me how to screenshot/capture screen with this new Kitkat upgrade? I have no idea.

Mine was like that too, then my friend gave me the Tab's charger which is compatible and I got my battery 100% charged in 3-4 hours only. I also bought a new one for n8000 and it works well too.
Today on 20 june i updated my device, but i did not like it,
1---- navigation button has come in lower middle portion which is completely pointless.
2----- The notification pannel is just taking entire screen, now what is point in covering the entire big screen with notification.
3----- all time except media and game, in landscape mode you will be getting little less working space that is due to notification at top 2 to 3mm space is always covered with black stripe, while browsing it is really annoying
after kitkat update in india it working fine but major drop back is battery draining to fast .
AnonD-98297, 07 Jun 2014multi windows works with more than 2 apss. just change the setting from split to cascaded...Where do we do this in 4.4.2?
charith, 12 Jun 2014How is the new multi window function? Does it have immersive mode, screen writing, screen reco... moreThe multi - window is a bit of a down grade. Earlier in cascade mode you could open more than 2 Windows. Now you are limited to 2. Also calculator is not a multi-window app anymore.
AnonD-274750, 17 Jun 2014for those who have not got the kitkat.. go dwonload the firmware from xda and flash it via odi... moreCan you post the link of the multi window app?
Don't we have immersive mode?
for those who have not got the kitkat.. go dwonload the firmware from xda and flash it via odin ... btw the german version has airview . to get multiwindow feature as like in the previous version .. root and install multiwindow app .. by making some mere changes in build.prop you'll get even better notification toggles and recent apps... ;)
recentlly udated my gt n8000 to kitkat 4.4.2 800.80mb after a long time this device get an ota update
One more thing.
After update, SD card support in 3rd party file explorers is BROKEN.
Still the update has not arrived to Singapore, Malaysia purchased devices :( Samsung malaysia is very late in updating the device :(
Done updating to Kit Kat.
Nice interface. Touch keys moved to center, Notification moved to top.
Shortcut key for screen shot is missing.
Just started updating my device here in India OTA. It's a 800.80 MB file.
Well in India, the kitkat update pops up in the device only...
kies still says there is no update.. so kitkat for n8000 is not officially released it seems.
The update received is around 800 MB and took 20 mins to install. After the update, there is a noticeable improvement in performance. As suggested in the replies below, the notification panel has gone up, and there are 3 touch icons below instead of 4. The UI response is really smooth. Added language support is cool. All in all, a very sweet update. I thought of selling my 2012 edition to buy 2014 one but I can hold on for long now. I did cut a ticket and asked them kitkat update tentative release date but they answered diplomatically saying they have no idea about the release. All in all, everything went good and no issues seen as of now..
