Archinstall 2.3.1 released with addition of PipeWire application profile, Btrfs installation improvements


Archinstall as a quick and easy-to-use installer for Arch Linux distribution has come out with a new point release that brings some nice improvements to the text-based OS installer.

Over the past year, Archinstall has become a great option found on the Arch Linux installation media for providing a timely and somewhat default (at least easily reproducible) setup of an Arch Linux installation. Archinstall is ideal for quickly deploying an Arch Linux installation without the hassle or reliance on the various desktop-focused Arch downstreams like Manjaro and EndeavourOS.

With Archinstall 2.3.1, it changed the default layout of the Btrfs subvolume to work better with Snapper/Timeshift, there is now a Pipewire application profile added, various install infrastructure improvements, and more again. There are also important fixes such as recursive handling of Btrfs suv-bolume, GRUB now handles UEFI configurations better, various partitioning fixes and the Xorg profile now sets the AMDGPU driver before the Radeon module for new initramfs images.

More details with the long list of Archinstall 2.3.1 changes/fixes via GitHub.
