In the past five weeks, we have released three point-releases of Intel® Clear Containers. The most recent, v2.1.4, released this week. As we continue to work to ensure a feature-filled and OS-agnostic offering, our latest efforts incorporate updates in the areas of compatibilitydocumentation, and quality.

Compatibility

  • Docker*: Clear Containers 2.1.4 is now compatible with Docker v17.03.1-ce.  This effort makes our development up to date with Docker’s enterprise edition. Soon, Clear containers will be part of Docker enterprise edition as a plugin.
  • Container Runtime Interface, CRI-O*: Compatibility with the Kubernetes CRI and the CRI-O project continues to be a key effort for the team. Our recent improvements in this area include: fixing the runtime list for pod containers, the addition of CRI-O integration tests, fixes for intra-pod containers volume support, and the ability to create cgroups for pods and containers.

Quality

 We added multiple tests in the last point releases, for example, hypervisor, network, and oci-config among others.

Documentation

A key part of our efforts is to make installation easy for our users.  We created new installation documents for the following key operating systems:
