Docker Announces Docker 17.06 Community Edition

Docker announced the release of Docker 17.06 Community Edition (CE), complete with a host of new features, improvements, and bug fixes.

According to Docker, Docker CE 17.06 is the first Docker version built entirely on the Moby Project, an open framework to assemble specialized container systems without reinventing the wheel.  Those in attendance at DockerCon 2017 back in April may remember, Docker made a series of announcements which included a discussion around a shift towards a new model with the Moby Project to build the Docker Engine.  Fast forward and CE 17.06 is the first major release since that show announcement.  

Docker CE 17.06 has a bunch of new features like Multi-Stage Build (allows you to build cleaner, smaller Docker images using a single Dockerfile), new Networking features (you can now attach services to node-local networks -- this includes networks like Host, Macvlan, IPVlan, Bridge, and local-scope plugins), a new metrics endpoint (you can now expose Docker's /metrics endpoint to plugins), a number of new features in Swarm Mode (a new configuration object and a public key infrastructure (PKI) system built into Docker), and more. 

To learn more, watch this video where Mano Marks (@manomarks), Docker Developer Relations Director, walks you through some of these major new features.
