Does the open source Docker engine contain the feature: "Use containerd for pulling and storing images"?


Docker Desktop for Windows contains this experimental feature: “Use containerd for pulling and storing images”.
My question is this feature specific to Docker Desktop for Windows or is available in the open source Docker engine?


You can find the release notes for the docker engine here: Docker Engine release notes | Docker Documentation. It is not mentioned.

At the same time there is a feature in the 21.x Planning · GitHub to delegate image handling to containerd (or whichever major version it will be at the end).

Though, you will find it in the release notes for Docker Desktop 4.12.0: Docker Desktop release notes | Docker Documentation

Must be a Docker Desktop only feature.
