Cockpit 163

Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly. Here are the release notes from version 163.

Hide Docker storage pool reset button when it cannot work properly

Fedora Atomic used to configure a separate logical volume called docker-root-lv as a Docker storage pool. Recently, Fedora Atomic switched to using one large volume for both the root partition and Docker.

Due to this change in Fedora Atomic, Cockpit can no longer remove and free previously added storage devices. As a result, we have removed the “Reset” button on the storage pool page under these circumstances.

Drop “Transfer data asynchronously” VDO option on Storage page

Recent versions of VDO now automatically detect the correct setting for asynchronous data transfer, so this option is no longer needed.

Manually setting the option may also lead to unsupported configurations in the future.

Update jQuery to version 3.3.1

Cockpit updated jQuery from 2.2 to 3.3.1.

Third party projects should no longer use Cockpit’s bundled jQuery, as announced in Cockpit 161. All known consumers of this deprecated usage have been updated.

If you have a private cockpit extension that currently includes "../base1/jquery.js", please verify that your project still works, remove the reference to Cockpit’s bundled jQuery, and include your own copy of jQuery through NPM or a CDN.
