Samsung finally showed some love for the galaxy tab 3 which was running 4.1.2 since the lauch.
The Kitkat firmware is available to download at sammobile its 831mb in size.
I have flashed the firmware and its good with some minor changes.
Below are the some changes i have noticed.
1) new lockscreen
2) album art now shown in lockscreen.
3) multi-window added.
4) gps toggle changed with location.
5) multi user support.
6) personal message now shown in lockscreen and its customisable.
7) new type of keyboard.
8) battery performance improved.

Screenshots coming soon.

Download the firmware from this site.
I recommend to use uc browser to download.
It will work on both t210 and t210r.

I know it probably isn't a big whoop, but that site says sm-t210, no sm-t210R.

Even so, I downloaded the rom/firmware (same thing right?) from the live-samsung updates site. I'm just trying to find a reliable way to back up my apps. Too bad Kies only does contacts and stuff. How did you handle your apps before upgrading? Did you use ODIN to do it?

Well either use Titanium Backup or a similar app, or just flash the firmware using odin. I did that and all my data is still present an the update did not wipe anything. And yeah I guess ROM and firmware are pretty much the same thing. At least everybody uses them as synonyms. Though I think there is a slight difference and I personally prefere the word ROM.
