61062039 story Docker 1.0 Released 88 Posted by Soulskill on Tuesday June 10, 2014 @09:00PM from the it's-done-for-arbitrary-values-of-done dept. Graculus writes: "Docker, the company that sponsors the Docker.org open source project, is gaining allies in making its commercially supported Linux container format a de facto standard. Linux containers are a way of packaging up applications and related software for movement over the network or Internet. Once at their destination, they launch in a standard way and enable multiple containers to run under a single host operating system. 15 months and 8,741 commits after the earliest version was made public, Docker 1.0 has been released."
