Suggestion: show `docker version` on About screen


(Vitor De Mario) #1

The About Docker window currently only the shows the version of the Docker for Mac release. At the time of this writing, 1.11.0-beta6.

The docker engine itself, however, is on version 1.11.0-rc3:

docker version
Client:
 Version:      1.11.0-rc3
 API version:  1.23
 Go version:   go1.5.3
 Git commit:   eabf97a
 Built:        Fri Apr  1 23:33:49 2016
 OS/Arch:      darwin/amd64

Server:
 Version:      1.11.0-rc3
 API version:  1.23
 Go version:   go1.5.3
 Git commit:   9b9022a
 Built:        Mon Apr  4 15:24:07 2016
 OS/Arch:      linux/amd64

It would be nice if those two versions would show up together.

@vdemario Ideally the version shown in the ‘about’ 1.11.0-beta6 will be in sync with the docker version as well 1.11.0.

Efforts will be made to make it more clear to the user for future releases. Thanks for the suggestion!
