Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly.
Machines: VM creation changes
Creating a VM by importing an existing disk has been moved to a separate dialog.
The Operating System input field is now mandatory; this allows the guest device assignment to be optimized, leading to better performance.
The storage size input field has to be at least the required minimum by the VM’s OS.
Machines: Enable interface type “direct” in NIC configuration
It’s now possible to directly attach the VM’s NIC to the specified physical interface of the host.
systemd: Add more actions to services
It’s now again possible to stop a service, without disabling it. Reloading is now available only when the service allows it.
Furthermore, disabling or masking a service removes any lingering “failed” state, reducing noise.
