RabbitMQ 3.5.7

3.5.7 is a bug fix and usability release. All 3.5.x series users are highly encouraged
to upgrade to 3.5.8
which includes a security vulnerability fix in the MQTT plugin.


Bug Fixes

  • Fix a race condition that could prevent nodes from stopping.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#465

  • file_handle_cache:clear_read_cache/0 no longer silently fails.

    The function is mean to be used with rabbitmqctl eval in environments where
    in-process buffering of file data is enabled.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#436

  • Default RABBITMQ_PLUGINS_DIR value on Windows should be calculated as relative to RabbitMQ
    server installation directory, not RABBITMQ_BASE.

    If you override RABBITMQ_BASE, you may need to copy plugins from %RABBITMQ_BASE%\plugins
    to the plugins directory under RabbitMQ installation.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#433

  • When rabbitmq-server failed to start due to an unreadable config file, exit code was 0

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#464

  • Overriding RABBITMQ_LOGS and RABBITMQ_SASL_LOGS on Windows prevented node from starting.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#375

  • Some startup code bits assumed IPv4 is enabled in the environment

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#117

  • More robust disk monitor, fewer errors logged.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#91

  • rabbitmqctl forget_cluster_node no longer attempts to impersonate live
    (reachable) nodes.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#470

  • rabbitmq-plugins was using an incorrect env variable.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#451


  • RAM watermark can be configured as an absolute value in bytes (just like with disk space monitoring):

    [{rabbit, [{vm_memory_high_watermark, {absolute, 1073741824}}]}].

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#207

  • rabbitmqctl authenticate_user is a new command that can be used to test user authentication.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#119

  • rabbitmqctl now supports exclusive as a queue info item.
