SystemRescue 8.00 comes about five months after SystemRescue 7.00, which was the first version to ship with the new name instead of SystemRescueCd. The biggest change in this new release is the inclusion of the long-term supported Linux 5.10 LTS kernel series for improved hardware support.

On top of that, SystemRescue 8.00 upgrades the default Xfce desktop environment used for the live session to the latest Xfce 4.16 release, which ships with numerous new features and improvements.Several of the included tools used for system rescue and recovery tasks have been updated as well in this release. These include GNU Parted 3.4, GParted 1.2.0, FSArchiver 0.8.6, Dislocker 0.7.3, nwipe 0.30, btrfs-progs 5.10.1, e2fsprogs 1.46.2, and xfsprogs 5.10.0.
