Updating boot2docker to 1.4.0 not taking

I’m trying to update docker/boot2docker using boot2docker download command but upon starting it, it is still running 1.3.2 client (docker –version)

  bash-3.2$ boot2docker download
  Latest release for boot2docker/boot2docker is v1.4.0
  Downloading boot2docker ISO image...
   Success: downloaded https://github.com/boot2docker/boot2docker/releases/download/v1.4.0/boot2docker.iso

Also, from the docker github OS X installer page, 1.3.2 is the only download option.

    You can manually download latest Docker binary and replace the existing one. Instruction here.

    This is my shell script to install+update latest Docker on a CentOS6/RHEL:

    # YUM install docker with required dependencies
    yum -y install docker-io
    # Move to a temp working directory
    work_dir=$(mktemp -d)
    cd "${work_dir}"
    trap "rm -rf -- ${work_dir}" EXIT
    # WGET latest release of Docker
    wget https://get.docker.com/builds/Linux/x86_64/docker-latest -O docker
    chmod +x docker
    # Replaces Docker with latest Docker binary
    mv docker /usr/bin/docker
    # Start Docker service
    service docker start

    Depend on where your binaries are stored, it might be a different location than /usr/bin

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