Docker for Windows has exited beta today and is now fully available for public release. It should be noted the company behind Docker is keeping a version as beta, so folks who want the latest features and bug fixes can take advantage of the new beta version of the app.

The following is its official release note:

•Faster and more reliable – native development environment using hypervisors built into each operating system. (No more VirtualBox!)
•Improved Docker tools integration – all the Docker tools you need to develop locally are bundled in the app.
•Improved development flow – Volume mounting for your code and data, and easy access to running containers on the localhost network. In-container debugging with supported IDEs also help you live debug projects, and iterate code quicker with less effort.
•Enterprise network support that lets Docker for Mac and Windows work easily with VPNs.
•All the new features available in Docker Engine 1.12.
•Automatic updates, with different channels for stable and beta.

If you’re already in the beta program, you’ll stay there. However, if you want something more stable, then you’ll have to download the newest version of the app that designed for the public.

For those unaware, Docker is an open platform designed for developers and sysadmins. It should help with the creation, running, and distribution of apps. It doesn’t matter if these apps are made for the cloud, data centers, or home computers, Docker will get the job done.
