The RabbitMQ .NET client is an implementation of an AMQP client library for C# (and, implicitly, other .NET languages), and a binding exposing AMQP services via Microsoft's Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). Please see the specification page for more information on AMQP interoperation and standards-conformance.
In order to compile or run the RabbitMQ .NET/C# client library, you will need an appropriate .NET SDK or runtime environment available, respectively.
The .NET/C# AMQP client library should be used in preference to the WCF binding where possible. The WCF binding suffers from a number of limitations and no further development is planned for it. The limitations are described in the WCF Service Model documentation.
The current release of the RabbitMQ .NET/C# AMQP library is 3.3.0. Consult the archive if you want to download a version of the RabbitMQ .NET/C# Client library or documentation other than the above.
