It's taken a while, but systemd 220 has been finally released.

The systemd 220 release brings its new (U)EFI boot manager derived from Gummiboot, Btrfs support improvements, a reboot to EFI setup option, the elimination of shutdownd, and other work.

Some of the other work includes splitting the Gudev library off into its own library, exposing a CPUUsageNSec property, reduced risk of EFI system partition corruption by automatically unmounting it, many networkd improvements, and much more.

The lengthy list of changes to systemd 220 can be found via this mailing list post.
