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..

finally kitkat 4.4.2 update for GT-N8000 arrived in INDIA via OTA. THANKS samsung..... for extending kitkat to note 10.1 2012 edition.... Yipee
Even today Samsung Malaysia told me that they cannot tell a exact date for android 4.4.2 release. Samsung India did not even respond to me.
Samsung regional update policy is a mess :(
German is the only country to have a official kitkat release according to sammobile.

When I spoke to samsung malaysia yesturday, they told me that they are still in the R&D phase of 4.4.2 for n8000 and they cannot say a exact release date. In 4.1.2 release also it took about one month to other countries to recieve the update after german.
Any idea when it will reach India?
Succesfully updated to kitkat
Finally official 4.4.2 for Germany is realeased.
