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.
