1.13.0 (2017-01-18)

IMPORTANT: In Docker 1.13, the managed plugin api changed, as compared to the experimental
version introduced in Docker 1.12. You must uninstall plugins which you installed with Docker 1.12
before upgrading to Docker 1.13. You can uninstall plugins using the docker plugin rm command.

If you have already upgraded to Docker 1.13 without uninstalling
previously-installed plugins, you may see this message when the Docker daemon

Error starting daemon: json: cannot unmarshal string into Go value of type types.PluginEnv

To manually remove all plugins and resolve this problem, take the following steps:

  1. Remove plugins.json from: /var/lib/docker/plugins/.
  2. Restart Docker. Verify that the Docker daemon starts with no errors.
  3. Reinstall your plugins.


  • Add capability to specify images used as a cache source on build. These images do not need to have local parent chain and can be pulled from other registries #26839
