All those features aren't working / present in the current 8.0 ALPHAs. 
We are still working hard
to implement a brand-new system installer for 8.0, which will be put in 
soon I'm hoping. Once that
goes in then we'll be able to start testing / confirming things such as 
ZFS, GMirror, Geli, Upgrades and others
are working :)
