RAID 6 support

I see in the graphic a suggestion that SoftRaid supports RAID Level 6.

 

Is this true ( I haven't seen it in an option to set up a new set) or is it a playful poke at the version SoftRaid 6 or did I miss something.

 

The last mention of this was a comment on a forum post from March 2021.

Not yet, we do intend to add RAID 6 support, but it has to wait until after we have full support for APFS, in 6.1.

So RAID 6 will only be in SR6.X and not SR5.X?

Yes, SoftRAID 5 is no longer maintained. SoftRAID 6 and onwards will have all future feature enhancements.

Not yet. M1 and APFS support has thrown a lot of issues in front.

It is on our road map, we have had so many issues in macOS to deal with first.

Lots of time passing with what transparently seems to be no progress on raid 6 support 😞

It is in the list of upcoming features, but I cannot comment more than that, sorry.
