Cockpit 236

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

Here are the release notes from Cockpit version 236.

fslist channels: Include properties of changed files

The fslist channel API lists files in a directory, watches for further changes to files, and sends events when changes happen. These notifications now include additional properties about the file: the owner and group name, file size, and time of last modification.

This contribution from leomoty can serve as the basis of a third-party file manager page. Thanks, leomoty!

Internal stabilization work

The Cockpit authors spent a lot of time on refactoring, dropping some obsolete dependencies like jquery-flot, replacing some custom React components with standard PatternFly ones, build system simplifications, and test stabilization. These don’t have a user-visible effect, but will make Cockpit easier to develop in the future.
