How can I create an install using ZFS as the filesystem?

Hi all

I have been looking into ZFS since it was announced on Ubuntu. I currently use Btrfs but like the sound of ZFS as it is apparently more stable and in some cases faster. Does anyone here know how to create an install with ZFS as the filesystem for / and /home?

Thanks

I know that it is available but it isn't possible to create and install to ZFS partitions from Calamares is it?

Then change the title :smiley: :wink: to
Why it's not possible to create and install ZFS partitions from Calamares?

and move it to #manjaro-development:feature-request
