Adopt Testcontainers Desktop as your container runtime (early access)
Testcontainers Desktop now embeds a lightweight and fast runtime, optimized for Testcontainers usage on macOS 13.3 or later. To get started, simply add `embedded.runtime.enabled = true` to your `.testcontainers.properties` file, then select the "Embedded Runtime" in the menu.
Clean up containers without manual docker commands
Testcontainers Desktop now includes a simple option to "Terminate containers" that cleans up all running Testcontainers-powered containers, while sparing other vanilla containers. This means you no longer need to remember a non-trivial `docker kill` command in the CLI when you would like to clean up reusable containers.
Link your test sessions to your CI pipeline
Your dashboards now link to the workflow that triggered a test session, such as a CI pipeline or job. To get started, simply set the TCC_WORKFLOW_KEY and TCC_WORKFLOW_URL environment variables.
Navigate from your CI to the test sessions in your dashboards
You can now quickly navigate to your Testcontainers Cloud dashboards via a direct link available in your logs and as a job summary in your GitHub Actions.
