Those who don’t know, Docker is a open source software which lets you (developer) test app in system container. Several moths before company has announced a close beta, where over 70,000 peoples tested it and improved it a lot so far.
At conference docker said,
And along with the beta for Docker for Mac and Windows, you get the new Docker 1.12 release candidate. Docker 1.12 includes a number of advanced orchestration features most requested by the Docker community, while preserving Docker’s ease of use. Starting with Docker 1.12, you will be able to natively deploy and manage not just containers but entire multi-tier distributed applications by creating a distributed application bundle.
Below are the docker features.
• A faster and more reliable native development environment by using hypervisor support built into each platform. (No more VirtualBox!)
• In-container debugging and development by improving volume support to automatically notify Docker Engine when a file changes and update it in the container. This allows you to get started developing with just a text editor and Docker, without having to install run-times and dependencies.
• Native networking that lets Docker for Mac and Windows work easily with VPNs.
