It is based on the blivet storage management library:

Which is also used by the Anaconda Fedore/Red Hat Enterprise Linux installer:

"The need of a new partition manager stems from the fact that none of the existing GUI partitioning tools supports all modern storage technologies"

Does the backend -and kickstart, support all those "modern storage technologies"?

That's the important part. For a GUI-based installation, the ability to format -and install into, a single root partition is good enough for me.

Yes - the blivet storage management library supports alsmost any existing data storage technology you can come up with and then some more. Thats the reason why Blivet GUI came to be - the functionality is already there, it just needs to be exposed by a graphical user interface.

You scratch my tape, and I'll scratch yours.
