Cockpit 237

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

Here are the release notes from Cockpit version 237.

Updates: Restyling in preparation for upcoming features

The updates page went through some design polishing in preparation for upcoming features.

Restyled updates page

Shell: SSH connections to remote machines are only opened when necessary

Cockpit remembers all remote hosts of a session and would previously connect to all of them when starting the next session. Now an SSH connection is only opened when navigating to the remote machine for the first time. This restricts possible security issues, as connected hosts can interact with each other.

Internal CI improvements

In the last two weeks, the team has been focusing heavily on stabilizing and improving our CI. These improvements include work on self-testing CI infrastructure as well as defining and implementing an error budget. These changes don’t have a user-visible effect, but will make Cockpit easier to develop in the future. Also we continued working on tests and build system improvements. On top all of that there is a bug fix in websocket; thanks to Asad Mehmood for that contribution!
