FAQs on Docker Desktop releases

Where can I find the checksums for the download files?

You can find the checksums on the release notes page.

How do new users install Docker Desktop?

Each Docker Desktop release is also delivered as a full installer for new users. The same applies if you have skipped a version, although this doesn't normally happen as updates are applied automatically.

How frequent will new releases be?

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

How do I ensure that all users on my team are using the same version?

Previously you had to manage this yourself. Now, it happens automatically as a side effect of all users being on the latest version.

My colleague has got a new version but I haven’t got it yet.

Sometimes we may roll out a new version gradually over a few days. Therefore, if you wait, it will turn up soon. Alternatively, you can select Check for Updates from the Docker menu to jump the queue and get the latest version immediately.

Where can I find information about Stable and Edge releases?

Starting with Docker Desktop 3.0.0, Stable and Edge releases are combined into a single, cumulative release stream for all users.
