Erlang/OTP Compatibility Notes
This release no longer supports Erlang/OTP 20.3.
21.3+ is now a hard requirement checked on node startup.
Make sure a supported Erlang version is used before upgrading.

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.
