Container images updated to Debian bullseye
Published January 2, 2023.
The latest versions of our container images are now based on Debian
bullseye and will from now on be updated daily with the latest OS updates.
Affected container images:
A new tagging scheme has also been implemented:
For Varnish Enterprise: varnish-plus:6.0.10r1
Varnish Controller Agent is bit special as it is based on a Varnish Plus image and versioned with the Varnish Plus version.
For Varnish Controller Agent image: varnish-controller-agent
- quay.io/varnish-software/varnish-controller-agent:latest (latest version of the controller agent + latest varnish plus)
- quay.io/varnish-software/varnish-controller-agent:4.1.2-6.0.10r5 (v4.1.2 Controller agent, v6.0.10r5 Varnish, latest version)
- quay.io/varnish-software/varnish-controller-agent:4.1.2-6.0.10r4 (v4.1.2 Controller agent, v6.0.10r4 Varnish, previous version)
Please note that it is only the latest version of each image and tag that are
This means that if you want to run a non-latest version of Varnish, the base
OS will not be kept up to date automatically. In order to keep the base OS up
to date it is necessary to build the image locally like this:
A simple example
# Switch to root user so we can update the image
# Update the image
RUN apt-get update && apt-get -y upgrade
# Switch back to varnish user as default
Build and update image:
docker build -t my-varnish .
