Update supported Docker API in GitLab Runner to follow Docker guidance
At the moment, we currently maintain support for Docker version 1.6 and API 1.18, and are missing support for some very current versions of Docker since the daemon is now starting to reject connections from these old clients.
For example, in Docker on Windows:
> docker version Client: Version: 17.11.0-ce API version: 1.18 Go version: go1.8.4 Git commit: 1caf76c Built: Mon Nov 20 18:30:11 2017 OS/Arch: windows/amd64 Error response from daemon: client version 1.18 is too old. Minimum supported API version is 1.24, please upgrade your client to a newer version
Let's roll forward the internal support in the Runner to the Docker recommendations here, which means to upgrade to 1.12 client and 1.24 API as our default version. This will help resolve some of the issues Windows users are seeing immediately, as well as ones on other platforms once distros update to newer version of Docker. Then, on an ongoing basis, we will follow the Docker-provided guidance on active versions in the field.
If/since our library can implement multiple versions, we can also expose the version as a configuration item. But the default should be the Docker-recommended minimum of 1.24.
