You can now launch RabbitMQ 3.8.23 brokers on Amazon MQ. This patch update to RabbitMQ contains several fixes and enhancements compared to the previously supported version, RabbitMQ 3.8.22.

Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for Apache ActiveMQ and RabbitMQ that makes it easier to set up and operate message brokers on Amazon Web Services. Amazon MQ reduces your operational responsibilities by managing the provisioning, setup, and maintenance of message brokers for you. Because Amazon MQ connects to your current applications with industry-standard APIs and protocols, you can more easily migrate to Amazon Web Services without having to rewrite code.

You can upgrade RabbitMQ with just a few clicks in the Amazon Web Services Management Console. If your broker has automatic minor version upgrade enabled, the broker will be automatically upgraded to version 3.8.23 during the prescribed maintenance window. To learn more about upgrading, please see: Managing Amazon MQ for RabbitMQ engine versions in the Amazon MQ Developer Guide.

RabbitMQ 3.8.23 includes the fixes and features of all previous releases of RabbitMQ and is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more, read the RabbitMQ Changelog.
