Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly.
Here are the release notes from version 134.
Login page is now translatable
The majority of Cockpit has long been translatable. Since the login page is a bit of a special case, it required some
special attention to make that also play well with the language display settings. Take a look at the video below for a demo.
Check out the Zanata link below, it’s very easy to contribute translations to Cockpit.
At this time our top 3 translations (>90%) are Polish (pl), Ukranian (uk) and Chinese (zh-CN). Every bit of help
here is greatly appreciated and a big thank you to our contributors!

Show message of the day on the System page
Cockpit now supports one more feature it was previously missing compared to the command line login: the
page now shows the current message of the day (
/etc/motd). When dismissed by clicking on the
X close button,
the message is hidden until it changes.
Expose fewer system service actions
Cockpit previously exposed systemd unit actions such as
Reload or Try Restart which are primarily intended for
scripts. The dropdown list now only shows actions which are useful for interactive human usage:
