Docker 18.09 support for setup_remote_docker?



We would really like to begin using Buildkit to mount our project’s ssh key during build time in order to build docker images with private github repo dependencies, but this requires a remote Docker Engine with at least API version 1.39.

Is there an ETA for setup_remote_docker Docker 18.09 support?


Great question. Right now we’re doing several Docker related updates however I wasn’t able to get an ETA for this specific request at this time.


Any workaround until circle support this?


Can you make the key available in your (outer) build container, and then use Docker ARG to inject it into the (inner) building container? I’ve not used ARG before, but I understand it makes environment values available at build-time only.
