Docker, The Open Platform to Build Apps, Launched for Mac and Windows

by August 2, 2016 0 comments

Docker announces the Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows  stable version that is ready to use for production.

Improvements included in stable version are:

-Faster and more reliable – native development environment using hypervisors built into each operating system. (No more VirtualBox!)

-Improved Docker tools integration – all the Docker tools you need to develop locally are bundled in the app.

-Improved development flow – Volume mounting for your code and data, and easy access to running containers on the localhost network. In-container debugging with supported IDEs also help you live to debug projects, and iterate code quicker with less effort.

-Enterprise network support that lets Docker for Mac and Windows work easily with VPNs.

-All the new features available in Docker Engine 1.12.

-Automatic updates, with different channels for stable and beta.


Stable and Beta Channels

Docker for Mac and Windows are available from 2 channels – stable and beta. New features and bug fixes will go out first in auto-updates to users in the beta channel. Updates to the stable channel are much less frequent and happen in sync with major and minor releases of the Docker engine. Only features that are well-tested and ready for production are added to the stable channel releases.

If you want the latest and greatest Docker experimental builds, use the beta channel. If you want fewer updates and can wait until new features and enhancements are tested and production-ready, use the stable channel.

If you are currently a beta user, your Docker for Mac or Windows install will remain on the beta channel, and be automatically updated with future beta releases. To switch to the stable release, simply download and run the stable installer.

If you want to try the beta releases and help by giving us feedback, download the beta installer here
