Added to the Arch Linux install media back in April was Archinstall as a quick/easy installer for the Linux distribution. Released today is now Archinstall 2.2 as the latest advancement for this convenient Arch Linux installer.

Archinstall 2.2 brings support for using GRUB as a secondary boot loader on installations, but is still considered experimental. Archinstall 2.2 also has a number of install experience improvements, the ability to select multiple options during installs, support for loading a JSON-based install configuration file, the minimal installation now includes AMD/Intel CPU microcode files by default, a new "--advanced" option for launching the installer with more options, and a variety of other improvements.

Archinstall 2.2 also now includes install profiles for Arch Linux deployments to servers or running with the Deepin, Enlightenment, or Sway desktops.
