Docker-compose not upgraded automatically with Docker Engine?


(Benze) #1

I’m running Docker for Windows. By default, the service is set to automatically update my Docker engine and it does that fairly well. Currently running Docker Engine Version: 17.09.0-ce win33 (13620).

However, docker-compose is still only at version: 1.16.1. Yet I see that docker-compose has already released a version 1.17.0 and 1.17.1.

From what I understand, Docker for Windows is supposed to keep my docker-compose up to date as well, but it seems to be at least a couple of versions behind.

How do I go about updating docker-compose? Are only certain docker-compose versions bundled with the DockerEngine? If so, are those “bundled versions” listed anywhere? I couldn’t find any details on the Docker site.
