Baseimage-docker 0.9.13 released

By Hongli Lai on August 22nd, 2014

Baseimage-docker is a special Docker image that is configured for correct use within Docker containers. It is Ubuntu, plus modifications for Docker-friendliness. You can use it as a base for your own Docker images. Learn more at the Github repository and the website, which explain in detail what the problems are with the stock Ubuntu base image, and why you should use baseimage-docker.

Changes in this release

  • Fixed my_init not properly exiting with a non-zero exit status when Ctrl-C is pressed.
  • The GID of the docker_env group has been changed from 1000 to 8377, in order to avoid GID conflicts with any groups that you might want to introduce inside the container.
  • The syslog-ng socket is now deleted before starting the syslog-ng daemon, to avoid the daemon from failing to start due to garbage on the filesystem. Thanks to Kingdon Barrett. Closes GH-129.
  • Typo fixes by Arkadi Shishlov.
