Thank you for all the hard work you are putting into the new release.

I just installed the beta using a ZFS root with UEFI on a single drive,
which boots fine but I want to mirror that first drive. 
Making a RAID1 out of a RAID0 ZFS vdev is the same as before, but I
wonder about duplicating the EFI System Partition.

I just wanted to let you know that the Help in the beta (<pve-
host>/pve-docs/chapter-sysadmin.html#chapter_zfs) still claims "It is
not possible to use ZFS as root file system with UEFI boot".

Is there any new documentation of shall I wait for the final release?

kind regards, Arjen
