The 0.5 series of the ZFS installer has been released.

The new version integrates parts of the updated official procedure for installing ZFS on Ubuntu-based distributions.

The main changes are:

  • ability to specify the root pool datasets, for users who want a granular subdivision of the filesystem;
  • KUbuntu support;
  • removal (at least temporary) of Debian support, as it diverges more than expected from the base procedure.

Users can follow the instructions on the home page, which is simply:

GET | sudo bash
