Good news for software containerisation fans: the official Windows client for Docker has been released in preview.
The Windows client is an open source project supporting the new Docker 1.6 released, and the code is freely available on GitHub. Right now you can only manage Docker hosts running Linux containers, but that will change in the future.
Microsoft originally announced its plans for a Docker client in October last year. Microsoft has also said it plans to integrate Docker support into the next version of Windows Server, which we’re expecting before the end of the year.
