Cockpit 134

Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly. Here are the release notes from version 134.

Login page is now translatable

The majority of Cockpit has long been translatable. Since the login page is a bit of a special case, it required some special attention to make that also play well with the language display settings. Take a look at the video below for a demo. Check out the Zanata link below, it’s very easy to contribute translations to Cockpit. At this time our top 3 translations (>90%) are Polish (pl), Ukrainian (uk) and Chinese (zh-CN). Every bit of help here is greatly appreciated and a big thank you to our contributors!

Show message of the day on the System page

Cockpit now supports one more feature it was previously missing compared to the command line login: the System page now shows the current message of the day (/etc/motd). When dismissed by clicking on the X close button, the message is hidden until it changes.

Message of the day

Expose fewer system service actions

Cockpit previously exposed systemd unit actions such as Reload or Try Restart which are primarily intended for scripts. The dropdown list now only shows actions which are useful for interactive human usage: Start, Stop, Restart and Reload.
