1.4 - 20150218
Important changes:
- Websockets support in the broker.
- Bridge behaviour on the local broker has changed due to the introduction of
the local_* options. This may affect you if you are using authentication
and/or ACLs with bridges.
- The default TLS behaviour has changed to accept all of TLS v1.2, v1.1 and
v1.0, rather than only only one version of the protocol. It is still
possible to restrict a listener to a single version of TLS.
- The Python client has been removed now that the Eclipse Paho Python client
has had a release.
- When a durable client reconnects, its queued messages are now checked
against ACLs in case of a change in username/ACL state since it last
- New use_username_as_clientid option on the broker, for preventing hijacking
of a client id.
- The client library and clients now have experimental SOCKS5 support.
- Wildcard TLS certificates are now supported for bridges and clients.
- The clients have support for config files with default options.
- Client and client libraries have support for MQTT v3.1.1.
- Bridge support for MQTT v3.1.1.
- Websockets support in the broker.
- Add local_clientid, local_username, local_password for bridge connections to
authenticate to the local broker.
- Default TLS mode now accepts TLS v1.2, v1.1 and v1.0.
- Support for ECDHE-ECDSA family ciphers.
- Fix bug #1324411, which could have had unexpected consequences for delayed
messages in rare circumstances.
- Add support for "session present" in CONNACK messages for MQTT v3.1.1.
- Remove strict protocol #ifdefs.
- Change $SYS/broker/clients/active -> $SYS/broker/clients/connected
- Change $SYS/broker/clients/inactive -> $SYS/broker/clients/disconnected
- When a durable client reconnects, its queued messages are now checked
against ACLs in case of a change in username/ACL state since it last
- libuuid is used to generate client ids, where it is available, when an MQTT
v3.1.1 client connects with a zero length client id.
- Anonymous clients are no longer accidently disconnected from the broker
after a SIGHUP.
- mosquitto_passwd now supports -b (batch mode) to allow the password to be
provided at the command line.
- Removed $SYS/broker/changeset. This was intended for use with debugging, but
in practice is of no use.
- Add support for use_username_as_clientid which can be used with
authentication to restrict ownership of client ids and hence prevent one
client disconnecting another by using the same client id.
- When "require_certificate" was false, the broker was incorrectly asking for
a certificate (but not checking it). This caused problems with some clients
and has been fixed so the broker no longer asks.
- When using syslog logging on non-Windows OSs, it is now possible to specify
the logging facility to one of local0-7 instead of the default "daemon".
- The bridge_attempt_unsubscribe option has been added, to allow the sending
of UNSUBSCRIBE requests to be disabled for topics with "out" direction.
Closes bug #456899.
- Wildcard TLS certificates are now supported for bridges.
- Support for "hour" client expiration lengths for the
persistent_client_expiration option. Closes bug #425835.
- Bridge support for MQTT v3.1.1.
- Root privileges are now dropped after starting listeners and loading
certificates/private keys, to allow private keys to have their permissions
restricted to the root user only. Closes bug #452914.
- Usernames and topics given in ACL files can now include a space. Closes bug
- Fix hang if pattern acl contains a %u but an anonymous client connect.
Closes bug #455402.
- Fix man page installation with cmake. Closes bug #458843.
- When using "log_dest file" the output file is now flushed periodically.
- Both clients can now load default configuration options from a file.

certain count of messages. Closes bug #453850.

Client library:
- Add experimental SOCKS5 support.
- mosquitto_loop_forever now quits after a fatal error, rather than blindly

- Add support for MQTT v3.1.1.
- Don't quit mosquitto_loop_forever() if broker not available on first
connect. Closes bug #453293, but requires more work.

- Fix possible memory leak when using a topic that has a leading slash. Fixes
bug #1360985.
- Fix saving persistent database on Windows.
- Temporarily disable ACL checks on subscriptions when using MQTT v3.1.1. This
is due to the complexity of checking wildcard ACLs against wildcard
subscriptions. This does not have a negative impact on security because
checks are still made before a message is sent to a client.
Fixes bug #1374291.
- When using -v and the broker receives a SIGHUP, verbose logging was being
disabled. This has been fixed.

returns an application error. Fixes bug #1340782.
- Ensure that bridges verify certificates by default when using TLS.
- Fix possible crash when using pattern ACLs that do not include a %u and
clients that connect without a username.
- Fix subscriptions being deleted when clients subscribed to a topic beginning
with a $ but that is not $SYS.

against ACLs in case of a change in username/ACL state since it last

1.3 - 20140316
- The broker no longer ignores the auth_plugin_init() return value.
- Accept SSLv2/SSLv3 HELLOs when using TLSv1, whilst keeping SSLv2 and SSLv3
disabled. This increases client compatibility without sacrificing security.
- The $SYS tree can now be disabled at runtime as well as at compile time.
- When remapping bridged topics, only check for matches when the message
direction is correct. This allows two identical topics to be remapped
differently for both in and out.
- Change "$SYS/broker/heap/current size" to "$SYS/broker/heap/current" for
easier parsing.
- Change "$SYS/broker/heap/maximum size" to "$SYS/broker/heap/maximum" for
easier parsing.
- Topics are no longer normalised from e.g a///topic to a/topic. This matches

unexpected behaviour if you were using topics of this form.
- Log when outgoing messages for a client begin to drop off the end of the
- Bridge clients are recognised as bridges even after reloading from
- Basic support for MQTT v3.1.1. This does not include being able to bridge to
an MQTT v3.1.1 broker.

the behaviour as clarified by the Oasis MQTT spec. This will lead to
unexpected behaviour if you were using topics of this form.
- Add support for SRV lookups.
- Break out of select() on publish(), subscribe() etc. when using the threaded
interface. Fixes bug #1270062.
- Handle incoming and outgoing messages separately. Fixes bug #1263172.

the threaded interface but does use their own thread. Fixes bug #1291473.

- Fix handling of SSL errors on SSL_accept().
- Fix handling of QoS 2 messages on client reconnect.
- Drop privileges now sets supplementary groups correctly.

1.1.2 - 20130130
Client library:
- Fix tls_cert_reqs not being set to SSL_VERIFY_PEER by default. This meant

message store.

0.5 - 20100227
- No longer store QoS=0 messages for disconnected clients that do not have
clean start set.

the SIGUSR1 signal.
- Clients that do not send CONNECT as their first command are now

0.2 - 20091204
- Replaced the command line option --foreground with --daemon, swapping the
default behaviour.
- Added the command line option --config-file, to specify a config file to
load. If this is not given, no config file is load and the default options
are used.
- Added the command line option --port for specifying the port to listen on.
This overrides values in the config file.
- Don't use persistence by default.
- Default behaviour is now more sane when run by a normal user with no command
line options (combination of above changes).
- Added option user to config file, defaulting to a value of mosquitto. If
this value isn't blank and mosquitto is started by root, then it will drop
privileges by changing to the user and its primary group. This replaces the
current behaviour of refusing to start if run by root.
- Fix non-persistent mode, which would never work in the previous release.
- Added information on default values of msg_timeout and sys_interval to the
mosquitto.conf man page. (closes bug #492045).
