Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly.
Machines: Network interface deletion
Network interfaces can now be removed from virtual machines.
login: Reuse password by default
For operations that change system state and for troubleshouting Cockpit needs administrative rights, so make reusing the password for privileged tasks the default.
Firewall: Prevent accidental deletion
A confirmation now appears when removing zones and the Cockpit service.
In addition to making the interface less volatile, Cockpit will warn you when you’re removing the cockpit service or a zone which contains the Cockpit service, as these could impact your current connection.
Furthermore, in order to avoid accidentally locking yourself out, Cockpit will automatically add itself to all newly-created zones.
Podman: User containers
The Cockpit-podman page now has support for user containers. These do not require administrative privileges to run.

Cockpit 206 and Cockpit-podman 10 are available now:
