Among other contributions this month, we have resources on using RabbitMQ successfully in a microservices architecture, why you should use messaging in your project with Rabbit and SpringBoot, and many other tips and tricks. So dive in, the water’s fine! And please stay safe, everyone.

This Month in RabbitMQ — December Recap!

Happy new year! 3.8.x has been available for over three months now and we’re seeing a lot of great uptake. This is good news, since the upgrade process is even easier with the addition of feature flags. Keep up the upgrading!

Over at the CloudAMQP blog, you’ll now find videos transcripts of all the RabbitMQ Summit talks. Those are useful if you didn’t make it to the event and want to know what’s in the talk before watching the full 30 minute replay.

Take a look at Observe and Understand RabbitMQ, for example.

We also published a new case study about LAIKA, the animation company that brought you Coraline, The BoxTrolls, and Missing Link. If you are interested in having your use case for RabbitMQ profiled on, drop a note in the mailing list or email

RabbitMQ 3.8 has just been released and has some major new features which focus on reliability, operations, and observability.

You can find the new 3.8 release on the GitHub releases page which includes information about what is included in the release as well as various installation assets. See our upgrade guide for more information about upgrading to 3.8.0.

Our team dedicates this release to Joe Armstrong, the creator of Erlang. Joe’s work in the fields of concurrent and distributed systems benefits RabbitMQ to this day. Equally importantly, Joe was a rare example of a brilliant engineer who was also very humble and kind.

Let’s take a quick look at the new features in this release.
