What’s New in Webmin 1.770 Release?
Since our last publication, covering the 1.750 and 1.760 releases, Webmin introduced a few changes.
Webmin 1.770 release comes with followig minor fixes:
- Added the Filemin File Manager module, which will eventually replace the old Java file manager.
- For new installs, switched the location of data files in many modules to /var/webmin instead of /etc/webmin.
- On CentOS, Fedora and Redhat systems, the DNSn lines in ifcfg-* files are now updated in sync with resolv.conf.
- Added an option to have Webmin validate the SSL certificate on remote systems when making RPC calls, to ensure that the connection to them has not been MITM’d.
- More German, Norwegian and Catalan translation updates. Also Polish, thanks to Piotr Kozica.
