RabbitMQ 3.8.14

RabbitMQ 3.8.14 is a maintenance release that restores
Erlang 22.3 compatibility for environments that use direct reply-to.

Erlang/OTP Compatibility Notes

This release requires Erlang 22.3.
Erlang 23 is highly recommended
for best forward compatibility with future RabbitMQ versions.

Provisioning Latest Erlang Releases explains
what package repositories and tools can be used to provision a recent version of Erlang 23.x.

Upgrade and Compatibility Notes

Upgrade Doc Guides and Change Log

See 3.8.0 release notes upgrade and
compatibility notes first if upgrading from an earlier release series (e.g. 3.7.x).

See the Upgrading guide for general documentation on upgrades and
RabbitMQ change log for release notes of other releases.

Upgrading to Erlang 22.x or Later Versions

When upgrading to this release from 3.7.15 or an older version, extra care has to be taken.

Because older RabbitMQ CLI tools can be incompatible with Erlang 22+ releases,
RabbitMQ must be upgraded at the same time as Erlang.

Alternatively the node can be upgraded to 3.7.18 on Erlang 21.3 first,
then Erlang 22.3 or 23.x, then RabbitMQ to the most recent 3.8.x release.
