Canonical’s Dustin Kirkland informed the Ubuntu community about the availability of the Docker 1.10 Linux container engine for every supported architecture in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus).
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS launches next week, on April 21, 2016, and Canonical has started revealing many of its upcoming features. Some of those, which may interest LXD users, are support for the Docker 1.10 Linux container engine on every Ubuntu architecture and the ability to run Docker inside LXD.
Therefore, after upgrading their systems to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on April 21 and after that, users will find Ubuntu Docker binaries and images for the ARMHf, ARM64 (AArch64), i686 (32-bit), amd64 (64-bit), PPC64el (PowerPC 64-bit Little Endian), and s390x (IBM System z) hardware architectures.
Dustin Kirkland, who is part of Canonical’s Ubuntu Product and Strategy team led by Mark Shuttleworth, has also had the great pleasure of announcing the general availability of Ubuntu Fan Networking, allowing users to connect all of their Docker containers that are spread across the network.
