We released NixOS 22.05 and nixpkgs 22.05, both codenamed “Quokka”!

A highlight is Nix 2.8, which brings experimental flakes support.

The other notable change is the new graphical installer, which @vlinkz led the integration of with @davidak doing a lot of additional work.

In 2013, someone requested a guided/graphical installer for #NixOS for the first time. There have been at least 6 attempts so far that all failed. Now, 9 years later, we have finally merged an implementation based on the #Calamares framework. It will be part of the stable release at the end of this month and is already available in unstable.
