Windows Server version 1803
Posted on 07 May 2018
In this latest update to Windows Server, we've continued to prioritize customer feedback by delivering additional optimizations to the server core base container image to reduce footprint and download times. We’re also delivering increased application compatibility, better performance, additional Kubernetes support, and continued optimizations for native Linux containers through Hyper-V isolation.
We also heard from many of our customers about how tools like the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) improved their management and scripting experience on Windows Server, so they'll be happy to know that the great work showcased on the Command Line Blog is also part of Windows Server, including background tasks, DriveFS, WSLPath and much more. Beyond that, we also now have native Windows versions of popular open source tools including tar, curl, and OpenSSH.
