On behalf of the Spring Integration team I’d like to announce the first (and final) Release Candidate of Spring AMQP 1.7, which is available in the Milestone Repository.

This release is mainly an intermediate between version 1.6.x and 2.0 for Spring Boot 1.5 and IO Platform Brussels compatibility.

Anyway there are several improvements and new features to explain here:

  • Upgrade to Amqp Client 4.0 with appropriate RabbitConnectionFactoryBean changes

  • Upgrade to Log4j 2.7 and required braking change fix for the log4j2.AmqpAppender

  • Upgrade to Spring Retry 1.2 with important StatefulRetryOperationsInterceptor.setUseRawKey(true) for backward compatibility
