This release of RabbitMQ for OpenVMS is based on the RabbitMQ 2.8.0 distribution. This
release includes a number of bug fixes and adds some valuable new features. Notable new
features include dead lettering (queues can specify an exchange to which messages should
be redirected when they are rejected or expire), and internal flow control to limit memory use
and make performance more predictable if the server is overloaded. Please refer to
http://lists.rabbitmq.com/pipermail/rabbitmq-announce/2012-March/000044.html for details of
these and other new features and improvements included in the 2.8.0 release.
Should you be interested in giving this version a try, please send an email to brett.r.cameron at gmail.com and johndapps at gmail.com requesting a kit.
