Well , first of all don’t panic Docker containers and images are still alive. It’s not that it will change everything.
So is true ? after all this ! this can be true ?
unfortunately yes this is true !
Docker support in the kubelet is now deprecated and will be removed in a future release. The kubelet uses a module called “dockershim” which implements CRI support for Docker and it has seen maintenance issues in the Kubernetes community. We encourage you to evaluate moving to a container runtime that is a full-fledged implementation of CRI (v1alpha1 or v1 compliant) as they become available, you can read more from this link.
What this mean as I read this ,that Docker does not support the Kubernetes Runtime API (CRI) and Kubernetes users have been used service ‘dockershim‘ as a bridge ,this was provided by Kubernetes but it’s going to be no more supported or provided in another releases .
people already started freaking out about this , but I need to remind you that all companies do changes and as developers we need to adopt that change ,if you want to know more and why follow this link from the official kubernetes website : Link
