FAQs on Docker Desktop releases

How frequent will new releases be?

New releases are available roughly every month, unless there are critical fixes that need to be released sooner.

The Automatically check for updates setting in the Software updates tab is turned on by default. This means you receive notifications in the Docker menu and a notification badge on the Docker Dashboard when a new version is available.

You can also let Docker Desktop automatically download new updates in the background by selecting the Always download updates checkbox.

Sometimes new versions are rolled out gradually over a few days. Therefore, if you wait, it will turn up soon. Alternatively, you can select Check for updates in the Docker menu to get the latest version immediately.

How do I ensure that all users in my organization are using the same version?

This is managed through your IT administrator's endpoint management software.
