Samsung isn't resting for a second these days and after releasing the first official firmware for the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 it has no released the kernel source for the mentioned device. Because of the open-sourceness of Android, Samsung is basically obliged to release the kernels to the public. This way developers can work directly with the code and improve it, or if not at least they can create some really cool mods apps and Custom ROMs for the devices. f you are interested in this and you want to download the source code you can do so by visiting Samsung's Open Source Page.
