3.6.x Series Support Timeline

Please read this node on RabbitMQ 3.6.x series support timeline.

Core Server

Bug Fixes

  • Memory usage monitor uses subprocesses a lot more sparingly. They are started
    roughly once a second or not started at all, depending on the strategy (e.g. on Windows
    Erlang VM allocator information is used instead).

    GitHub issues: rabbitmq-server#1343, rabbitmq-common#224

  • Very busy queues are now more efficient at prioritizing consumers, avoiding
    consumer delivery blocking when relatively long running operations (e.g. bulk flushing
    of transient messages to disk) happen.

    GitHub issues: rabbitmq-server#1388, rabbitmq-server#1407

  • Queue master strategies now take additional queue HA arguments into account.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1371

  • Logging to standard output using RABBITMQ_LOGS=- wasn't possible on Windows.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1348

  • Queue master locator name now can be specified as Erlang strings.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1411

  • Direct Erlang client connections could fail with obscure messages when
    target node was still booting.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq-server#1356
