Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly. Here are the release notes from version 221.
Support for Cross-Origin-Resource-Policy
Cockpit’s web server now sets the
same-origin. Web browsers use this header to prevent other
from Cockpit via
<script>, or similar tags. This is mostly
a precaution – currently there are no known vulnerabilities with
including resources that way, but as this is not a legitimate use
case, there is no reason to allow it.
Accounts: Hide some buttons when access is limited
Instead of disabling the appropriate buttons when the logged in user doesn’t have administrative access, they will now simply disappear. This is a general theme that we want to roll out all over Cockpit. The Overview, Storage, and Network pages have already been changed like this in earlier releases.
Developers: Importing “base1/patternfly.css” is deprecated
This pre-compiled stylesheet will be dropped in the future in favor of projects shipping their own CSS. This API is not maintainable, as Cockpit cannot offer a PatternFly 3 API forever, and PatternFly 4 also changes quickly enough that one style sheet for all projects is not robust enough.
The Cockpit plugins that are using only PatternFly 4 should follow the example from starter-kit on how to import PatternFly 4 stylesheets. g The Cockpit plugins which are still relying on PatternFly 3 should follow the migration from the deprecated API to the new PatternFly stylesheet import approach as implemented in this cockpit-podman commit.
