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

Here are the release notes from Cockpit version 239.

Machines: Allow editing disk cache mode

It’s now possible to edit the cache mode for existing virtual machine disks. This was previously only possible when creating new disks. In order to edit the cache mode, any machines using the volume need to be powered off.

Packaging: Removed ./configure options for distribution-specific packages

The ./configure script dropped several distribution-specific options:

  • --with-vdo-package
  • --with-nfs-client-package
  • --with-appstream-config-packages
  • --with-appstream-data-packages

Manifest files now contain this same information, which is more portable across distributions.

Administrators can still adjust these values in override.json files.
