Description

Would be nice to have the posibillity for "online upgrades".
Like:
Select available versions,
download image in sha,
backup config,
install,
restore config...

Gooddies

Storing the config with every version, so switching between several version is just a boot away. Would make support much nicer, also there will be some kind of config versioning.Rollbacks are more comfortable. A list below the "Upgrade" with custom comments would make it perfect. Perhaps I sometimes expect to much, but as long there are so many hackers available why not trying to push as much as possible :)

History

I'm totally in synch with you. It would be nice to use UFS snapshots instead of multiple slices, maybe.. it might be a good idea to split this request into several requests to make things easier to achieve.

Well, yes, a dump & restore and I'm fine. While pushing the installation to a zfs volume would be even nicer :) Even on a pendrive it would be cool to simply send the entire system to a remoteserver or local pool -- mhh, yeah letz clone it :)
