If you're a Mac or Windows user, the best way to install Compose and keep it up-to-date is Docker for Mac and Windows.

Docker for Mac and Windows will automatically install the latest version of Docker Engine for you.

Alternatively, you can use the usual commands to install or upgrade Compose:

curl -L`uname -s`-`uname -m` -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

See the install docs for more install options and instructions.

  • Fixed a bug where working with containers created with a previous (< 1.23.0)
    version of Compose would cause unexpected crashes

  • Fixed an issue where the behavior of the --project-directory flag would
    vary depending on which subcommand was being used.

Thanks to @shin- for contributing to this release!
