Cockpit 311

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

Here are the release notes from cockpit-machines 307:

Machines: Replace SPICE for multiple machines

“Replace SPICE devices” was introduced in Cockpit 310 to adjust VMs using SPICE to run on a host without SPICE capability. When opened from the context menu of a VM on the overview list, the dialog now offers to convert multiple VMs in a single step.

Machines: Add storage pool support for pre-formatted block devices

Virtual machine storage pools now support pre-formatted block devices. This is a more robust alternative to “physical disk devices”, as it avoids the guest OS seeing the device on its own, which may lead to unintentional reformatting of a raw disk device.
