Version     Highlights of New Features
in.the.lab Windows Container (Docker) support - We are performing extended testing of Docker support for Windows applications (included with Windows Server 2016). We have found a number of issues that we believe preclude its use with Tracker in a production environment. Most of these issues have been fixed by subsequent updates from Microsoft. We expect to release a Docker image for NetResults Tracker once the remaining issues are resolved (either by updates to Windows Server 2016 or work arounds that we implement).
