PSU 4.0.0-beta3 Docker container (A query)

Product: PowerShell Universal
Version: 4.0.0-beta3

I have noticed that a PowerShell Universal 4.0.0-beta3 container has been released

I was wondering if there are any under the hood changes to the container?

More specifically:

  • Is the same source container in use? (The Microsoft published PowerShell container)
  • Is there any enhanced support for native ARM/Multi-arch containers planned?
  • Will the Ubuntu 18.04 container be supported throughout the 4.0 release cycle?
  • Will any other container OS versions be introduced? Ubuntu 18.04 is starting to come to end of support

I look forward to testing this beta over the weekend :slight_smile:

Hi @adam,

I was wondering if you had a few mins to review my query before the weekend.

Happy Friday :slight_smile:

There haven’t been any changes.

The same source container is in use. We haven’t planned on ARM\mult-arch containers but I’ve chosen to open source the docker files and build because it seems like there is more docker knowledge that community could provide to help push along some of these items.

Since 18.04 has reached end of life, it seems like we should remove support for that. We could introduce 22.04 support.

The dockerfiles and build can be found here: GitHub - ironmansoftware/universal-docker: Docker images for PowerShell Universal.

Feel free to chime in on improvements. Totally open to issues and PRs. Production builds will be coming from this repo.
