Cockpit 170

Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly. Here are the release notes from version 170.

Software Updates: Layout rework

The Software Updates page has improved mobile browser support.

Updates Mobile

On desktop browsers, the updates list avoids line breaks in the version column. Versions become truncated when there’s not enough room to display the complete string. Hovering over the shortened string shows the complete version.

Updates Truncating Version

oVirt: Use authenticated libvirt connection by default

The oVirt version of the Machines page now uses a TLS-enabled libvirt connection URI instead of qemu:///. This enables libvirt operations that require authentication. One common example is sending an NMI.

A machines-ovirt.config file with a VIRSH_CONNECTION_URI option may override the connection address.

Thanks to Sharon Gratch for this improvement!
