How can I upgrade Docker on a Mac?

I tried just ‘docker-machine upgrade’ and that did some work but I don’t seem to have the latest CLI.

If I do ‘docker version’ I get:

    I understand there are some new commands I’m not seeing so I suspect I don’t have the latest software.

    Since you are on mac, you should install homebrew and from there you can install and upgrade docker with the command brew install docker and brew upgrade. Homebrew is a package manager for mac that makes installation of such applications easy.

    Just try this way:

    $ mkdir ~/docker
    $ curl -Lo  ~/docker/docker-1.13.0-dev https://master.dockerproject.org/darwin/amd64/docker-1.13.0-dev
    $ sudo rm -f /usr/local/bin/docker
    $ sudo ln -s ~/docker/docker-1.13.0-dev /usr/local/bin/docker
    

    you can find all current master branch in this link

    For homebrew usage: I needed to overwrite the last version of docker by using:

    brew link --overwrite docker
    

    Check with

    docker --version
    
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
