Cockpit 316

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

Here are the release notes from Cockpit 316, cockpit-machines 312, and cockpit-podman 87:

cockpit.js API: Fix format_bytes() units

The cockpit.format_bytes() function now writes the unit for kilobytes as SI conformant “kB” instead of “KB” when formatting decimal (base-10) sizes. It also uses the unit “B” (bytes) for numbers less than 1000 instead of no unit at all.

Note that many projects, in particular the ones based on current starter-kit, bundle cockpit.js and usually also pin down a specific git commit from cockpit.git. So these projects won’t immediately pick up the change, but should update the cockpit library import and possibly adjust their usage of format_bytes().

Try it out

Cockpit 316, cockpit-machines 312, cockpit-ostree 202 and cockpit-podman 87 are available now:
