Changes Worth Mentioning

Core Server


  • Binding recovery on node startup is now more efficient. This means in clusters with a lot of
    queues and/or bindings, nodes start quicker.

GitHub issue: #3137

  • Plugin directory paths are now deduplicated, so if a single directory is specified
    more than once, the node won't complain about duplicate plugins.

GitHub issue: #3155

  • Startup banner and log entries now use path separators more consistently on Windows.

Thanks to Linda @LindaLawton Lawton for pointing out the inconsistency.

GitHub issue: #3149

Shovel Plugin

Bug Fixes

  • When dynamic Shovels are started the plugin now acquires a distributed lock.
    This is generally not necessary but helps avoid duplicate Shovels being started
    via import of a definition file on every cluster node during cluster formation.

    GitHub issue: #3167
