Latest Arch Linux ISO Release Comes with the ArchInstall CLI Guided Installer

Arch Linux 2021.04.01 is now available for download as the most up-to-date installation medium of this independently developed, flexible, lightweight, and rolling-release GNU/Linux distribution.

While last month’s ISO release was the first to be powered by the latest and greatest Linux 5.11 kernel, Arch Linux’s ISO release for April 2021 includes the archinstall guided installer developed by Anton Hvornum. Written in Python, archInstall has been around for a few years now and it acts as both a guided/automated installer for Arch Linux, as well as a Python library to manage packages, services, and other things inside the installed system.
