Docker 1.10: New Compose file, improved security, networking and much more!

We’re pleased to announce Docker 1.10, jam-packed with stuff you’ve been asking for. It’s now much easier to define and run complex distributed apps with Docker Compose. The power that Compose brought to orchestrating containers is now available for setting up networks and volumes. On your development machine, you can set up your app with multiple network tiers and complex storage configurations, replicating how you might set it up in production. You can then take that same configuration from development, and use it to run your app on CI, on staging, and right through into production. Check out the blog post about the new Compose file to find out more.

Docker Engine 1.10 Security Improvements

It’s been a crazy past few months with DockerCon and the holidays but yet we are still hacking away on the Docker Engine and have some really awesome security features I would like to highlight with the release of Docker Engine 1.10. Security is very important to us and our approach is two-fold; one is to provide a secure foundation on which to build applications and second, to provide capabilities to secure the applications themselves. Docker Engine is the foundation on which you pull, build and run containers and all the features listed below are about giving your more granular controls for access, resources and other kickass stuff… OK, enough with the introduction – let’s get to the good stuff!

Compose 1.6: New Compose file for defining networks and volumes

In the previous version of Docker Engine we added a completely new system for managing networks and volumes, and we’re pleased to announce full support for these features in Docker Compose. Compose files used to describe just one thing: the services that make up your distributed application. We’ve now added networks and volumes to the mix, allowing you to describe much more complex applications. You can set up your app on your development machine with multiple network tiers and complex storage configurations, replicating how you might set it up in production. You can then take that same configuration from development, and use it to run your app on CI, on staging, and right through into production.
