Cockpit 206 and Cockpit-podman 10

Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly.

Machines: Network interface deletion

Network interfaces can now be removed from virtual machines.

Machines NIC deletion

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.
