Release: Docker Engine 1.5

Docker Logo

Docker has released version 1.5 of its container virtualization solution. Docker provides so called container virtualization, allowing an application and its dependencies to run as an isolated process inside a virtual environment. This environment is then portable from local computers to backend infrastructure and cloud. Docker uses LinuX Containers (LXC) running in the host OS allowing you to share the resouces available to the host.


Some of the new features in this release (more details on GitHub):

  • Support for IPv6 networking between containers
  • Read-only option for Docker container filesystems
  • Performance improvements in build and image management
