Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly. Here are the release notes from version 152.
Add Applications page
This version introduces the “Applications” tool page. This is an extension point for third-party software to add themselves to the Cockpit interface, by shipping appropriate AppStream metadata.
Note that at the moment there are no real Cockpit applications available yet. For testing this feature on Fedora, Marius Vollmer provides a COPR repository that can be enabled with these commands:
dnf copr enable mvo/cockpit-app-freeipa dnf install appstream-data-mvo
See it in action:
Add automatic update configuration for dnf to Software Updates
On Fedora ≥ 26, the Software Updates page now offers to enable and configure dnf-automatic for automatic daily or weekly updates.
For now this is only shown if the
dnf-automatic package is already installed.
Future Cockpit versions will install that on demand, and also cover
Fix cockpit-bridge crash if /etc/os-release does not exist
Some environments (particularly Docker containers) might not have an
/etc/os-release file, which
cockpit-bridge previously required.
