Calamares 3.2.39 released
Mar 19, 2021
Still chipping away at the 3.2.37 milestone, and adding some other features, and tidying up module internals and improving the QML-UI side of things, here’s another quick-release of Calamares. Note that btrfs support is relatively new and has a number of open issues with it.
This release contains contributions from (alphabetically by first name):
- Matti Hyttinen
- A packages service has been added to the core, for use by netinstall module and any others that need to set up package information for the packages module.
- The mount module has gained a configurable setup for btrfs volumes.
If your distro has a default-to-btrfs setup, it can skip the hard-
coded setup (which Calamares has had for a long time with @home
and similar) and introduce a custom btrfs configuration through the
mount.conffile. See issues #1659 and #1661 for warnings about using this in production.
- netinstall now supports fallbacks for the groups data. Instead of a single URL, multiple URLs may be specified in a list and Calamares goes through them until one is successfully retrieved. Older configurations with a single string are treated like a one-item list. #1579
- The usersq module now connects to the internal configuration object and may be usable for regular installations.
