When you update to the latest version of Docker Desktop, you’ll be able to one-click run four of the most popular Docker Official Images to help you tackle common challenges faced when using containers. The best part about the new homepage? You finally have a clear path to run your first image without leaving Docker Desktop and being sent to the CLI.

  • Kubernetes v1.24 is included in Docker Desktop, removing dependency on dockershim.

Docker Desktop includes Kubernetes, optimized and tuned for a fast, distraction-free developer experience. Docker team tracks upstream Kubernetes changes and manage Kubernetes upgrades so developers can focus on their code rather than cluster administration. In the recent 4.7.0 release Docker team already switched Kubernetes from “dockershim” to “cri-dockerd”.
