Timestamps are encoded as 64bit integers but are here decoded as two 32 bit numbers. Normally this works well when the timestamp is a 32bit number, but not when it has millisecond precision.


timestamp = data.slice(offset, 8).unpack(PACK_UINT32_X2).last

instead of

timestamp = data.slice(offset, 8).unpack(PACK_UINT32_X2).last

we should do

timestamp = data.slice(offset, 8).unpack("Q>").first

And at encoding:

UINT64 = "Q".freeze

UINT64 = "Q>".freeze

To do big-endian (network-endian) encoding and not platform/native endian.

## Changes between 2.1.0 and 2.2.0 (unreleased)

### Timestamps are Encoded as 64-bit Unsigned Integers

This is a potentially **breaking change**. It is recommended that
all applications that use this gem and pass date/time values in message
properties or headers are upgraded at the same time.
