Software Update: Webmin 1.660

Version 1.660 of Webmin has been released. With this program a Unix-like system can be maintained and administered from a web browser. For example, it is possible to manage user accounts, to change settings for Apache, Mysql and dns, and to create file shares. Webmin consists of a simple web server, supplemented with various CGI programs written in Perl 5. The software is released under the bsd license and is available in various flavors, from this page to download. Since version 1.600, the following changes and improvements have been made:
