Upgraded Autobuild System on Docker Hub

Docker Hub‘s automated build system is one of it’s most popular features. One quarter of all repositories on Docker Hub are created through the automated build system, and the system is now processing over 60,000 builds per week – a 300% increase since the beginning of this year. Today, we are releasing a major upgrade to our Autobuild system which features dynamic matching of git branches and tags, a faster and more secure build infrastructure, and user control over build parallelism.

Docker Hub Deprecation for Clients 1.5 and Earlier

Last spring Docker released Engine version 1.6 and Registry version 2. These introduced an updated push / pull protocol featuring faster image transfers, simplified image definition, and improved security. The Docker community has aggressively adopted them, and as a result over 99% of Docker Hub usage is based on these newer version. As a result we are deprecating support on Docker Hub for clients version 1.5 and earlier.
