Docker, the popular open-source container, released version 0.7 today, and it comes equipped with standard Linux support.

No longer running solely on Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions, Docker has added support for Red Hat, SUSE, Gentoo and Arch distributions, among others. No more recompiling kernels to automate additional Linux deployments.

Docker 0.7 also packs six other new features on top of bug fixes:
• Storage drivers
• Offline transfer
• Advanced port redirects
• Links
• Container naming
• “Quality”—a broadly named way of saying they’ve improved the user interface, test coverage, robustness, ease of deployment, documentation and consistency of APIs

You can read about each feature in more detail in Docker’s official blog post.
