Project Atomic is pleased to announce the release of the Atomic Developer Bundle (ADB) 1.6, a Vagrant box that provides a ready-to-use development environment for container applications. With the ADB, developers can dive right into producing complex, multi-container applications. The ADB is useful on Microsoft Windows, Apple’s OS X and GNU/Linux distributions.

The 1.6 release adds several new features, including:

  • Mesos Marathon as a supported container orchestrator
  • A new delivery location in HashiCorp’s Atlas box catalog, projectatomic/adb
  • ADB descriptive details now reported in /etc/os-release:
    • VARIANT="Atomic Developer Bundle (ADB)"
    • VARIANT_ID="adb"
    • VARIANT_VERSION="1.6.0"
  • Updated Documentation, a new Maintainer and more

The ADB provides a container development ecosystem that ensures that developers are able to work with Linux containers even if their base operating system does not support it.

The ADB provides a quick and easy way to setup multi-container applications that take advantage of management and/or orchestration solutions, such as OpenShift or Kubernetes. The ADB also supports Nulecule and Atomic App. These projects provide a structure for packaging, distributing, and deploying multi-container applications.
