Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly.
Here are the release notes from Cockpit 289, cockpit-machines 287, and cockpit-podman 66:
Metrics: Indicate high usage and use colorblind-friendly colors
Graphs on the metrics page indicate high usage by using a darker variant of the color. Additionaly, colors have been adjusted to use a colorblind-optimized subset of PatternFly chart colors.
Accounts: Improve password validation
When creating an account, password validation actively performs a check on every keystroke, once the same numbers of character have been met. Additionally, weak passwords are now shown with a warning to discourage usage, but can still be overridden in most cases.
Machines: Show an alert when virtualization is disabled in BIOS/EFI
Cockpit-Machines displays a full-page alert when virtualization is disabled in the BIOS/EFI settings, preventing potential issues when running a VM.
Thanks to Subho Ghosh for this contribution!
Podman: Custom healthcheck actions
When health checks fail, Cockpit-Podman can now optionally restart, stop, or force stop a container. This feature requires Podman 4.3 or higher.
Podman: Container list can be sorted
Cockpit-Podman’s container list now supports sorting by name, owner, CPU, memory, and state.
