RabbitMQ 3.7.13

RabbitMQ 3.7.13 is a maintenance release. It focuses on bug fixes and
minor usability improvements. This release requires Erlang/OTP 20.3 or later.

Erlang/OTP Compatibility Notes

Per the new Erlang version support policy in effect starting with January 2019,
this release no longer supports Erlang/OTP 19.3.
Make sure a supported Erlang version is used before upgrading.

Provisioning Latest Erlang Releases
explains what package repositories and tools can be used to provision latest patch versions of
Erlang 20.3.x and 21.x.

Compatibility Notes

Minimum Required Erlang Version

This release requires Erlang/OTP 20.3 or later.

Upgrading to Erlang 21.x

When upgrading to this release and upgrading Erlang to 21.x at the same time, extra care has to be taken.
Since CLI tools from RabbitMQ releases older than 3.7.7 will fail on Erlang 21,
RabbitMQ must be upgraded before Erlang.

compatibility notes if upgrading from an earlier release.

RabbitMQ change log for release notes of other releases.

Core Server

Bug Fixes


CLI Tools


  • rabbitmqctl shutdown in --wait mode now uses node names instead of gethostname(2) when inferring
    if target node is remote. This is more reliable as it takes explicitly set node names and ERL_INETRC
    settings into account. In addition, it treats all nodes that have @localhost in the name as local
    (running on the same host).

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq/rabbitmq-cli#327.

  • rabbitmqctl forget_cluster_node produces a more helpful error message when asked to remove a node with running
    RabbitMQ application.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq/rabbitmq-cli#323

  • New command, rabbitmqctl force_gc, that requests fullsweep GC for all processes on the target node.

    GitHub issue: rabbitmq/rabbitmq-cli#319

  • All RabbitMQ CLI tools now support --version as well as version as a command.
