Docker Engine release notes

Estimated reading time: 133 minutes

These release notes are for Docker Engine versions 1.13.1 and lower. For newer Docker releases, see Docker CE or Docker EE.

1.13.1 (2017-02-08)

Important: On Linux distributions where devicemapper was the default storage driver, the overlay2, or overlay is now used by default (if the kernel supports it). To use devicemapper, you can manually configure the storage driver to use through the --storage-driver daemon option, or by setting “storage-driver” in the daemon.json configuration file.

Important: In Docker 1.13, the managed plugin api changed, as compared to the experimental version introduced in Docker 1.12. You must uninstall plugins which you installed with Docker 1.12 before upgrading to Docker 1.13. You can uninstall plugins using the docker plugin rm command.

If you have already upgraded to Docker 1.13 without uninstalling previously-installed plugins, you may see this message when the Docker daemon starts:

Error starting daemon: json: cannot unmarshal string into Go value of type types.PluginEnv

To manually remove all plugins and resolve this problem, take the following steps:

  1. Remove plugins.json from: /var/lib/docker/plugins/.
  2. Restart Docker. Verify that the Docker daemon starts with no errors.
  3. Reinstall your plugins.

1.12.6 (2017-01-10)

IMPORTANT: Docker 1.12 ships with an updated systemd unit file for rpm based installs (which includes RHEL, Fedora, CentOS, and Oracle Linux 7). When upgrading from an older version of docker, the upgrade process may not automatically install the updated version of the unit file, or fail to start the docker service if;

  • the systemd unit file (/usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service) contains local changes, or
  • a systemd drop-in file is present, and contains -H fd:// in the ExecStart directive

Starting the docker service will produce an error:

Failed to start docker.service: Unit docker.socket failed to load: No such file or directory.

or

no sockets found via socket activation: make sure the service was started by systemd.

To resolve this:

  • Backup the current version of the unit file, and replace the file with the version that ships with docker 1.12
  • Remove the Requires=docker.socket directive from the /usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service file if present
  • Remove -H fd:// from the ExecStart directive (both in the main unit file, and in any drop-in files present).

After making those changes, run sudo systemctl daemon-reload, and sudo systemctl restart docker to reload changes and (re)start the docker daemon.

NOTE: Docker 1.12.5 will correctly validate that either an IPv6 subnet is provided or that the IPAM driver can provide one when you specify the --ipv6 option.

If you are currently using the --ipv6 option without specifying the --fixed-cidr-v6 option, the Docker daemon will refuse to start with the following message:

Error starting daemon: Error initializing network controller: Error creating
                       default "bridge" network: failed to parse pool request
                       for address space "LocalDefault" pool " subpool ":
                       could not find an available, non-overlapping IPv6 address
                       pool among the defaults to assign to the network

To resolve this error, either remove the --ipv6 flag (to preserve the same behavior as in Docker 1.12.3 and earlier), or provide an IPv6 subnet as the value of the --fixed-cidr-v6 flag.

In a similar way, if you specify the --ipv6 flag when creating a network with the default IPAM driver, without providing an IPv6 --subnet, network creation will fail with the following message:

Error response from daemon: failed to parse pool request for address space
                            "LocalDefault" pool "" subpool "": could not find an
                            available, non-overlapping IPv6 address pool among
                            the defaults to assign to the network

To resolve this, either remove the --ipv6 flag (to preserve the same behavior as in Docker 1.12.3 and earlier), or provide an IPv6 subnet as the value of the --subnet flag.

The network network creation will instead succeed if you use an external IPAM driver which supports automatic allocation of IPv6 subnets.

Runtime

  • Fix runC privilege escalation (CVE-2016-9962)

1.12.1 (2016-08-18)

IMPORTANT: Docker 1.12 ships with an updated systemd unit file for rpm based installs (which includes RHEL, Fedora, CentOS, and Oracle Linux 7). When upgrading from an older version of docker, the upgrade process may not automatically install the updated version of the unit file, or fail to start the docker service if;

  • the systemd unit file (/usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service) contains local changes, or
  • a systemd drop-in file is present, and contains -H fd:// in the ExecStart directive

Starting the docker service will produce an error:

Failed to start docker.service: Unit docker.socket failed to load: No such file or directory.

or

no sockets found via socket activation: make sure the service was started by systemd.

To resolve this:

  • Backup the current version of the unit file, and replace the file with the version that ships with docker 1.12
  • Remove the Requires=docker.socket directive from the /usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service file if present
  • Remove -H fd:// from the ExecStart directive (both in the main unit file, and in any drop-in files present).

After making those changes, run sudo systemctl daemon-reload, and sudo systemctl restart docker to reload changes and (re)start the docker daemon.

1.12.0 (2016-07-28)

IMPORTANT: Docker 1.12.0 ships with an updated systemd unit file for rpm based installs (which includes RHEL, Fedora, CentOS, and Oracle Linux 7). When upgrading from an older version of docker, the upgrade process may not automatically install the updated version of the unit file, or fail to start the docker service if;

  • the systemd unit file (/usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service) contains local changes, or
  • a systemd drop-in file is present, and contains -H fd:// in the ExecStart directive

Starting the docker service will produce an error:

Failed to start docker.service: Unit docker.socket failed to load: No such file or directory.

or

no sockets found via socket activation: make sure the service was started by systemd.

To resolve this:

  • Backup the current version of the unit file, and replace the file with the version that ships with docker 1.12
  • Remove the Requires=docker.socket directive from the /usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service file if present
  • Remove -H fd:// from the ExecStart directive (both in the main unit file, and in any drop-in files present).

After making those changes, run sudo systemctl daemon-reload, and sudo systemctl restart docker to reload changes and (re)start the docker daemon.

0.8.0 (2014-02-04)

Notable features since 0.7.0

  • Images and containers can be removed much faster
  • Building an image from source with docker build is now much faster
  • The Docker daemon starts and stops much faster
  • The memory footprint of many common operations has been reduced, by streaming files instead of buffering them in memory, fixing memory leaks, and fixing various suboptimal memory allocations
  • Several race conditions were fixed, making Docker more stable under very high concurrency load. This makes Docker more stable and less likely to crash and reduces the memory footprint of many common operations
  • All packaging operations are now built on the Go language’s standard tar implementation, which is bundled with Docker itself. This makes packaging more portable across host distributions, and solves several issues caused by quirks and incompatibilities between different distributions of tar
  • Docker can now create, remove and modify larger numbers of containers and images graciously thanks to more aggressive releasing of system resources. For example the storage driver API now allows Docker to do reference counting on mounts created by the drivers With the ongoing changes to the networking and execution subsystems of docker testing these areas have been a focus of the refactoring. By moving these subsystems into separate packages we can test, analyze, and monitor coverage and quality of these packages
  • Many components have been separated into smaller sub-packages, each with a dedicated test suite. As a result the code is better-tested, more readable and easier to change

  • The ADD instruction now supports caching, which avoids unnecessarily re-uploading the same source content again and again when it hasn’t changed
