Cockpit 0.111

Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. There’s a new release every week, although it’s been a while since the release notes were posted. Here are the highlights from this weeks 0.107 through 0.111 releases.

SELinux enforcing policy

You can now temporarily disable SELinux enforcing mode from the SELinux troubleshooting dashboard. This is useful when diagnosing permission issues that you might think are SELinux related.

Stable Javascript API

Cockpit now has a stable Javascript API for components or plugins to build off of. Various unstable portions were removed from the base1 package in preparation for this. There’s more work going on to help make it easy to build out of tree components or plugins.

GlusterFS in Kubernetes Dashboard

The Kubernetes dashboard now lists Gluster volumes in the dashboard, lets you configure them for pods to use.

Kubernetes pending Persistent Volume Claims

The Kubernetes dashboard lists pods which have outstanding volume claims, and then allows you to fulfill those claims by creating appropriate persistent volumes.

Marius has worked on adding support for Linux network teaming to the Cockpit admin interface. Teaming is a better more coherent way of building a network bond.
