I gave a try to the new installer beta, and I must say I'm impressed. A
lot of stuff can be done from the installer and that's really great.
Thanks for all.

But I've been puzzled when I tried to setup an encrypted filesystem.
When I chose to setup an encrypted filesystem, i was told it was
not allowed to do it with a clear swap space.

But creating an encrypted swap space requires to do all the stuff

Probably the installer should make it easier and propose to switch the
swap to an encrypted swap instead.

I expect that partman-auto-crypto will be added to d-i during next week. It will automatically setup a system for you with encrypted partitions (except /boot).

Hopefully that will make things easier....
