RabbitMQ 3.12.13 is a maintenance release in the 3.12.x release series.
This series is covered by community support through June 30, 2024 and extended commercial support through Dec 31, 2024.

Please refer to the upgrade section from the 3.12.0 release notes
if upgrading from a version prior to 3.12.0.

This release requires Erlang 25 and supports Erlang versions up to 26.2.x.
RabbitMQ and Erlang/OTP Compatibility Matrix has more details on
Erlang version requirements for RabbitMQ.

Minimum Supported Erlang Version

As of 3.12.0, RabbitMQ requires Erlang 25. Nodes will fail to start on older Erlang releases.

Users upgrading from 3.11.x (or older releases) on Erlang 25 to 3.12.x on Erlang 26
(both RabbitMQ and Erlang are upgraded at the same time) must consult
the v3.12.0 release notes first.

Changes Worth Mentioning

Release notes can be found on GitHub at rabbitmq-server/release-notes.

Core Broker

Bug Fixes

  • When a channel is closed, its consumer metric samples will now be cleared differently
    depending on the number of them. In #9356, it was over optimized for the uncommon case with
    a very large number of consumers per channel, hurting the baseline case with one or a few consumers
    per channel.
