Here are the release notes from Cockpit 270, cockpit-machines 269, and cockpit-podman 48:

System Diagnostics: Working with diagnostic reports has been improved

The Diagnostic Reports page now lists all reports that have been created. Reports can be downloaded and removed from the list. When creating a new report, several options can be specified.

Machines: Redesign content removal dialogs

Dialogs for deleting resources on the Machines page now show details about which resources are about to be deleted.

For example: Removing host devices from the VM shows the host device with identifying information such as vendor, product, and slot number.

Another example: When deleting a storage pool, optional deletion of volumes now shows which volumes would be deleted.

Thanks to Pavel Stržínek for this feature!
