Dear Maintainers,

The latest set of docker images on R-4.0.0 are now available on docker hub. You can access the latest images with,

	docker pull bioconductor/bioconductor_docker:devel 

	docker pull bioconductor/bioconductor_docker:RELEASE_3_11

	docker pull bioconductor/bioconductor_docker:latest

Note: The "latest" tag now points to the RELEASE_3_11 version of Bioconductor.


- The new set of docker images inherit from the latest stack of images produced by rocker (https://github.com/rocker-org/rocker-versioned2). It has taken some time to produce the new images because the rocker images have been developed on Ubuntu 18.04 base images, as opposed to Debian. 

- With the new 'bioconductor/bioconductor_docker' images being available on Ubuntu 18.04, we move closer to mimicking the Bioconductor linux build machine.

- Both images which are produced now, build almost all the packages in Bioconductor. RStudio is also available as in previous versions. 

Best regards,

Nitesh Turaga
Bioconductor Core Team
