Cockpit 287

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

Here are the release notes from Cockpit 287 and cockpit-podman 64:

Services: Pinned units need to be re-done

The data storage for “pinned” systemd units has changed. After upgrading to this Cockpit version, you need to re-pin units.

Development: Cockpit now supports the esbuild bundler

esbuild is a much faster bundler alternative for webpack. It also natively understands JSX, so that it is not necessary any more to use babel. Cockpit’s shared components and bundler plugins in pkg/lib/ now support both eslint and webpack, so that projects can pick either. cockpit-podman moved to esbuild in this commit. You may choose to do the same for your project.

Cockpit 287 and cockpit-podman 64 are available now:
