Please don't abandon Jails in future releases

Hi,

I recently went from using 10.0.4 Corral to 9.10 when I read that the development of Corral would be abandoned.

Through that downgrading experience, I realize that Docker is incredibly useful and has a substantial user/code base, but I much prefer Jails. Jails are MUCH easier to use and maintain, and seem to integrate better with FreeNAS/BSD, and likely use fewer system resources than Docker.

Is there any substantive reason not to include Jails in future releases other than, "oooh, new and shiny"? Can't we have them both?

Thanks,
Avery

There are several posts concerning this very thing on the forums. Not only are jails NOT going away, they are being updated to use iocage for future jail management.
