    Hi everyone! Thanks for your patience on this and apologies for not updating this thread sooner. The machine executor has been updated with 19.03 installed. More on this release can be found in our Announcements section of the forum and in our changelog.

    Remote docker has not yet been updated. We will leave this idea open to continue collecting feedback for remote docker.

    It's frustrating that something so basic is still not done. 2019.03 came out some 10 months ago at this point. What possibly reason could you have for taking so long? We're at the point of leaving CircleCI altogether due to stuff like this.

    With 19.03.3 we could support Buildkit cache storage via the circleci cache build steps using Buildkit based cached images (right now docker_layer_caching: true doesn't work correctly when you have concurrent builds on multiple branches).

    Yes, definitely it would be great.

    And it is really weird that it's not the case today, as it requires really minimal work on your side.

    Would it conflict / collision your internal Docker layer caching feature ?

    Without Docker +19.03 I cannot use Buildkit features

    I'm also looking forward to a machine image with Docker +19.03 because I'm using Buildkit features that are working properly in such version (v19.03.3 more specifically)

    If you can update docker-compose on the go would be fantastic.
