Announcing Webhook Repository Subscriptions

Back in December at DockerCon Europe, we announced chained Webhooks. This enabled you to configure your deployment processes to continue only if the previous Webhook completed successfully.  Today we are excited to announce expanded Webhook capabilities. You can now set up Webhook subscriptions to repositories that you do not own but use. For example, when your favorite Official Repository is updated with a security patch you can automate your build and deploy processes to take advance of changes immediately.  

Updates Available to Popular Repos – Update Your Images

At Docker, we’re working with our open source community to build a rich ecosystem of containerized images.  In the past year alone, Docker users and partners have created 100,000+ images and pulled 200+ million images from Docker Hub.  We’re proud of our progress to-date, and committed to the developers who rely on Docker images for critical workflows—whether they’re Official Repos released by Docker ourselves, or images created by the community. Before Official Repos, it was members of the community like @Pilwon who got the public repositories going with content for their fellow users. We would like to thank @Pilwon for being an awesome and early creator of community images, which he posted in an account called ‘dockerfile’. Many of these images are very popular within the Docker community and this is a great example of our community stepping up to Continue reading…

Kitematic a Docker GUI joins the Docker family

We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of Kitematic, the fastest and easiest way to use Docker on the Mac.  Because Docker is a tool for developers, we find that the developers in the ecosystem build the best tools for Docker.  Orchard’s Fig (now Compose) and SocketPlane are great examples of where great ideas were generated in the ecosystem to improving the developer experience and providing operational flexibility for distributed applications. Today with Kitematic, we take another step in simplifying the developer experience and making Docker accessible to new and different software developers – further growing and enriching the community and ecosystem together.

Docker Hub Jan 5 outage

Monday January 5th at 10:04am PST, the Docker Hub network experienced a service interruption for approximately one hour. The outage was caused by a networking configuration change to our border router, which is responsible for directing all traffic for services related to Docker Hub. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this outage has caused. During this outage we have identified areas for improvement and are implementing changes to the way we manage the operations of Docker Hub: Improve our escalation and monitoring procedures so that the response times are faster Implement a robust environment for testing networking changes before rolling them to production Implement a more informative site is down error page Again, we are very sorry for the inconvenience this outage has caused and thank you for your patience as we work to increase Docker Hub’s performance and reliability.
