RabbitMQ 3.7.28 is a security patch release.

RabbitMQ 3.7.x series are out of general support and covered by the limited extended support policy
through October 1st, 2020.

RabbitMQ Core team would like to thank Ofir Hamam and Tomer Hadad at Ernst & Young's Hacktics Advanced Security Center

Erlang/OTP Compatibility Notes

This release no longer supports Erlang/OTP 20.3.
Erlang 21.3+ is now a hard requirement checked on node startup.

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 21.3.x and 22.x.

Compatibility Notes

Upgrading to Erlang 21.x or Later Versions

When upgrading to this release and upgrading Erlang to 21.x or later 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 or later,
RabbitMQ must be upgraded before Erlang.

Upgrade Doc Guides and Change Log
