The announcement states:

Based on Fedora 28 and the upstream kernel 4.18, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.0 will provide users with a stable, secure background in hybrid cloud, as well as the tools needed to support traditional and emerging jobs.

Highlights of the new release: Distribution Content is available through BaseOS and Application Stream (AppStream) repositories.

The AppStream repository supports a new extension of the traditional RPM format - so that many basic versions of a package are available for installation. YUM package manager is now based on DNF technology and provides support for modular content, which provides increased performance and a well-designed stable API for integration into tools.
