Docker complements LXC with a high-level API which operates at the process level. It runs unix processes with strong guarantees of isolation and repeatability across servers. Docker is a great building block for automating distributed systems: large-scale web deployments, database clusters, continuous deployment systems, private PaaS, service-oriented architectures, etc.

    2015-02-11 - - Updated to 1.5.0 (2015-02-10): * Builder: - Dockerfile to use for a given `docker build` can be specified with the `-f` flag - Dockerfile and .dockerignore files can be themselves excluded as part of the .dockerignore file, thus preventing modifications to these files invalidating ADD or COPY instructions cache - ADD and COPY instructions accept relative paths - Dockerfile `FROM scratch` instruction is now interpreted as a no-base specifier - Improve performance when exposing a large number of ports * Hack: - Allow client-side only integration tests for Windows - Include docker-py integration tests against Docker daemon as part of our test suites * Packaging: - Support for the new version of the registry HTTP API - Speed up `docker push` for images with a majority of already existing layers - Fixed contacting a private registry through a proxy * Remote API: - A new endpoint will stream live container resource metrics and can be accessed with the `docker stats` command - Containers can be renamed using the new `rename` endpoint and the associated `docker rename` command - Container `inspect` endpoint show the ID of `exec` commands running in this container - Container `inspect` endpoint show the number of times Docker auto-restarted the container - New types of event can be streamed by the `events` endpoint: ‘OOM’ (container died with out of memory), ‘exec_create’, and ‘exec_start' - Fixed returned string fields which hold numeric characters incorrectly omitting surrounding double quotes * Runtime: - Docker daemon has full IPv6 support - The `docker run` command can take the `--pid=host` flag to use the host PID namespace, which makes it possible for example to debug host processes using containerized debugging tools - The `docker run` command can take the `--read-only` flag to make the container’s root filesystem mounted as readonly, which can be used in combination with volumes to force a container’s processes to only write to locations that will be persisted - Container total memory usage can be limited for `docker run` using the `—memory-swap` flag - Major stability improvements for devicemapper storage driver - Better integration with host system: containers will reflect changes to the host's `/etc/resolv.conf` file when restarted - Better integration with host system: per-container iptable rules are moved to the DOCKER chain - Fixed container exiting on out of memory to return an invalid exit code * Other: - The HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY, and NO_PROXY environment variables are properly taken into account by the client when connecting to the Docker daemon

    2015-01-15 - - Updated to 1.4.1 (2014-12-15): * Runtime: - Fix issue with volumes-from and bind mounts not being honored after create (fixes bnc#913213)

    2015-01-15 - - Added e2fsprogs as runtime dependency, this is required when the devicemapper driver is used. (bnc#913211). - Fixed owner & group for docker.socket (thanks to Andrei Dziahel and
