Red Flag Linux, a long-standing Chinese Linux distribution that originated within the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1999, has seen its first major release in years. The Red Hat derived Linux distribution now has many modern open-source packages.

Red Flag Linux 8.0 was released today as the first major release since Red Flag 7.0 in early 2009. Red Flag Linux 8.0 is still shipping a KDE desktop but now it's using KDE Plasma 4.10, it's integrated systemd support from Fedora, the Linux 3.6 kernel is in use, a new system installer is present, Google Chromium has become the Chinese Linux distribution's web browser, and there's been many other changes.
