VirtioFS goes GA

Back in March, Docker introduced VirtioFS  to improve sharing performance for macOS users. With Docker Desktop 4.15, it’s now generally available and you can enable it on the Preferences page.

A New Quick Search Feature

With quick search, you get to skip all of this (especially the annoyance!) and find exactly what you’re looking for in one simple search — along with relevant actions like the option to start/stop a container or run a new image.

It even searches the Docker Hub API to help you run any public and private images you’ve hosted there!

Use Dev Environments with any IDE

When you create a new Dev Environment via Docker Desktop, you can now use any editor or IDE you’ve installed locally. Docker Desktop bind mounts your source code directory to the container. You can interact with the files locally as you normally do, and all your changes will be reflected in the Dev Environment.

A New Build Tab under Extensions

In the Extensions Marketplace, you’ve got your Browse tab, your Manage tab, and, now, your Build tab. The Build tab brings all the resources you need to get started into one centralized view. You’ll find links to videos, documentation, community resources, and more! To start building, click “+ Add Extensions” in Docker Desktop and navigate to the new Build tab.

Ability to run Wasm containers

Docker Desktop 4.15 added WebAssembly capabilities 1. Now you can use Wasm with the containerd integration.

The New docker extension share CLI

This new release added the ability to share extensions more easily, either with docker extension share CLI or with the share button in the extensions Manage tab.
