IMPORTANT: Docker 1.10 uses a new content-addressable storage for images and layers.
A migration is performed the first time docker is run, and can take a significant amount of time depending on the number of images present.
Refer to this page on the wiki for more information:
We also released a cool migration utility that enables you to perform the migration before updating to reduce downtime.
Engine 1.10 migrator can be found on Docker Hub:


  • New docker update command that allows updating resource constraints on running containers #15078
  • Add --tmpfs flag to docker run to create a tmpfs mount in a container #13587
  • Add --format flag to docker images command #17692
  • Allow to set daemon configuration in a file and hot-reload it with the SIGHUP signal #18587
  • Updated docker events to include more meta-data and event types #18888
    This change is backward compatible in the API, but not on the CLI.
  • Add --blkio-weight-device flag to docker run #13959
  • Add --device-read-bps and --device-write-bps flags to docker run #14466
  • Add --device-read-iops and --device-write-iops flags to docker run #15879
  • Add --oom-score-adj flag to docker run #16277
  • Add --detach-keys flag to attach, run, start and exec commands to override the default key sequence that detaches from a container #15666
  • Add --shm-size flag to run, create and build to set the size of /dev/shm #16168
  • Show the number of running, stopped, and paused containers in docker info #19249
  • Show the OSType and Architecture in docker info #17478
  • Add --cgroup-parent flag on daemon to set cgroup parent for all containers #19062
  • Add -L flag to docker cp to follow symlinks #16613
  • New status=dead filter for docker ps #17908
  • Change docker run exit codes to distinguish between runtime and application errors #14012
  • Enhance docker events --since and --until to support nanoseconds and timezones #17495
  • Add --all/-a flag to stats to include both running and stopped containers #16742
  • Change the default cgroup-driver to cgroupfs #17704
  • Emit a "tag" event when tagging an image with build -t #17115
  • Best effort for linked containers' start order when starting the daemon #18208
  • Add ability to add multiple tags on build #15780
  • Permit OPTIONS request against any url, thus fixing issue with CORS #19569
  • Fix the --quiet flag on docker build to actually be quiet #17428
  • Fix docker images --filter dangling=false to now show all non-dangling images #19326
  • Fix race condition causing autorestart turning off on restart #17629
  • Recognize GPFS filesystems #19216
  • Fix obscure bug preventing to start containers #19751
  • Forbid exec during container restart #19722
  • devicemapper: Increasing --storage-opt dm.basesize will now increase the base device size on daemon restart #19123


  • Add --userns-remap flag to daemon to support user namespaces (previously in experimental) #19187
  • Add support for custom seccomp profiles in --security-opt #17989
  • Add default seccomp profile #18780
  • Add --authorization-plugin flag to daemon to customize ACLs #15365
  • Docker Content Trust now supports the ability to read and write user delegations #18887
    This is an optional, opt-in feature that requires the explicit use of the Notary command-line utility in order to be enabled.
    Enabling delegation support in a specific repository will break the ability of Docker 1.9 and 1.8 to pull from that repository, if content trust is enabled.
  • Allow SELinux to run in a container when using the BTRFS storage driver #16452


  • Use content-addressable storage for images and layers #17924
    Note that a migration is performed the first time docker is run; it can take a significant amount of time depending on the number of images and containers present.
    Images no longer depend on the parent chain but contain a list of layer references.
    docker load/docker save tarballs now also contain content-addressable image configurations.
    For more information:
  • Add support for the new manifest format ("schema2") #18785
  • Lots of improvements for push and pull: performance++, retries on failed downloads, cancelling on client disconnect #18353, #18418, #19109, #18353

  • Fix issue where docker could hang indefinitely waiting for a nonexistent process to pull an image #19743

  • Fix data not being copied to named volumes #19175
  • Fix issues preventing volume drivers from being containerized #19500
