Cockpit 166

Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly. Here are the release notes from version 166.

Kubernetes: Add creation of Virtual Machines

The KubeVirt Virtual Machines page now offers a “Create” button for defining a new virtual machine. The JSON definition can be provided with a file upload, with drag & drop, or by copy & pasting. See it in action:

Thanks to suomiy for this improvement!

Realms: Automatically set up Kerberos keytab for Cockpit web server

When joining a FreeIPA domain, Cockpit now automatically sets up Kerberos Single Sign-On for its web server. With that, users with a valid kerberos ticket (from kinit) will be logged into Cockpit without having to go through the login page.

Numbers now get formatted correctly for the selected language

Numbers like disk sizes or network bandwidth usages are now shown with the correct decimal separator for the current browser language.
