   SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for docker

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2015:0460-1
Rating:             moderate
References:         #917647 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12

   An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.


   Docker was updated to 1.5.0 (2015-02-10) [bnc#917647] bringing new
   features and bugfixes:

     * Builder:
       - Dockerfile to use for a given `docker build` can be specified with
         the `-f` flag
       - Dockerfile and .dockerignore files can be themselves excluded as part
         of the .dockerignore file, thus preventing modifications to these
   files invalidating ADD or COPY instructions cache
       - ADD and COPY instructions accept relative paths
       - Dockerfile `FROM scratch` instruction is now interpreted as a
         no-base specifier
       - Improve performance when exposing a large number of ports
     * Hack:
       - Allow client-side only integration tests for Windows
       - Include docker-py integration tests against Docker daemon as part of
         our test suites
     * Packaging:
       - Support for the new version of the registry HTTP API
       - Speed up `docker push` for images with a majority of already
         existing layers
       - Fixed contacting a private registry through a proxy
     * Remote API:
       - A new endpoint will stream live container resource metrics and can
         be accessed with the `docker stats` command
       - Containers can be renamed using the new `rename` endpoint and the
         associated `docker rename` command
       - Container `inspect` endpoint show the ID of `exec` commands running
         in this container
       - Container `inspect` endpoint show the number of times Docker
         auto-restarted the container
       - New types of event can be streamed by the `events` endpoint:
         ‘OOM’ (container died with out of memory), ‘exec_create’,
         and ‘exec_start'
       - Fixed returned string fields which hold numeric characters
         omitting surrounding double quotes
     * Runtime:
       - Docker daemon has full IPv6 support
       - The `docker run` command can take the `--pid=host` flag to use the
         host PID namespace, which makes it possible for example to debug
         host processes using containerized debugging tools
       - The `docker run` command can take the `--read-only` flag to make the
         container’s root filesystem mounted as readonly, which can be used
         in combination with volumes to force a container’s processes to
         only write to locations that will be persisted
       - Container total memory usage can be limited for `docker run` using
         the `—memory-swap` flag
       - Major stability improvements for devicemapper storage driver
       - Better integration with host system: containers will reflect changes
         to the host's `/etc/resolv.conf` file when restarted
       - Better integration with host system: per-container iptable rules are
         moved to the DOCKER chain
       - Fixed container exiting on out of memory to return an invalid exit
     * Other:
       - The HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY, and NO_PROXY environment variables are
         properly taken into account by the client when connecting to the
         Docker daemon
