RabbitMQ 3.0 was a big step this year for the messaging queue (and NoSQL distributed cache).  The Spring-based open source project had a ton of new features added this year and we've got a video and list to keep you informed about what's new.

From RabbitMQ.com:

  • Policy-based mirroring
  • Faster mirroring
  • Dynamic federation
  • New clustering commands
  • Partition detection
  • Per-message TTL
  • Enabling heartbeats by default
  • Memory use statistics
  • Background GC
  • Reverse DNS lookups
  • Web-STOMP and MQTT



In the last year and a half, RabbitMQ has seen six major new releases. In this talk, we briefly review messaging, RabbitMQ and the AMQP protocol before covering some of the new features including easier plugin management, new plugins and extensions, publisher confirms, dead lettering, and a new high availability feature based on mirroring queues across nodes in a cluster.
