Podman 5

Podman 5

Run containers.

Our review

What we like

Underlying platform for running containers (with Podman Desktop as a GUI). Now supports the latest macOS VM framework. Pasta networking backend now the default allowing rootless / unprivileged connectivity. Supports various OCI formats for running various containers. Simplifies k8s locally.

What we don't like

You may need to migrate to the new format if you were using the previous machines functionality.
