RabbitMQ 3.10.0 release calendar


March 24, 2022

We intend to release RabbitMQ 3.10.0 on 11 April 2022. While we have been testing it internally for some time, with production-like workloads, we need your help to check that it is as stable and reliable as we believe it is.

This is the timeline that we have to work together on making 3.10.0 the best release for you:

The above release calendar is a point-in-time snapshot. For latest updates please refer to the Release Series page.

RabbitMQ 3.10.0 introduces some highly requested functionality for quorum queues:

Additionally, there are performance improvements to both classic queues and quorum queues.

This release calendar is meant to communicate what to expect, and when. Based on your feedback during the pre-release timeline, we may add additional release candidates, and extend the release timeline.

Our intention is to give you the opportunity to find issues with this release before we publish the final version. We all want important new releases, such as 3.10.0, to be as stable and reliable as possible. While we have gone to great lengths to ensure that this is the case, more eyes and experiments will always help, especially with a community as experienced and battle-hardened as ours.

Help us make RabbitMQ 3.10.0 the best release for you!

Intent to remove capabilities in RabbitMQ 4.0

We are intending to remove some aged and suboptimal capabilities of RabbitMQ (see blog post here).

RabbitMQ 3.10 works towards this removal by improving feature parity between Classic Mirrored Queues and Quorum Queues.

We have not yet set a release date for 4.0.
