See the installation instructions for details, but it's easy:

  • macOS Homebrew and Linux Linuxbrew: brew upgrade ddev
  • Linux or macOS via script:
    curl | bash
  • Windows: Download the ddev_windows_installer.v1.7.1.exe above or with Chocolatey choco install ddev or choco upgrade ddev (or choco install ddev --version=1.7.1 while it's in the approval process.)
    And anywhere, you can just download the tarball or zipball, untar or unzip it, and place the executable in your path where it belongs.

NOTE: Especially to mariadb 10.1 users: If you had to explicitly set the dbcontainer version in your .ddev/config.yaml due to the bug in v1.6.0, please remove that now.

Key changes in v1.7.1:

  • config.*.yaml overrides: local configuration files can be used to override a team-standard checked-in .ddev/config.yaml. See docs. #1504 and #1410.
  • Optional static bind ports for db and webserver containers. Those who want the dbserver or webserver bound port to be static within a project can use host_db_port or host_webserver_port to specify it: #1502, #1491, #941
  • Previous versions of Docker for Mac supported operating systems back to El Capitan, but Docker-for-Mac has dropped support for anything before macOS Sierra 10.12, so ddev also has to drop support for everything before Sierra.
  • The default PHP version changes to 7.2. This affects new Drupal 8 and Drupal 7 projects, as well as projects of type "php".
  • Fix regression in v1.5.0 where mariadb_version = 10.1 did not properly set the container version to the 10.1 container version.
  • The ddev-dbserver images now use the official MariaDB docker image (which uses Debian) as a base, instead of building a custom Alpine image. This should be invisible to all users, but we love to hear feedback.
