You can now launch Apache ActiveMQ 5.15.9 brokers on Amazon MQ. This minor update to ActiveMQ contains several fixes and new features compared to the previously supported version, ActiveMQ 5.15.8.

Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for Apache ActiveMQ that makes it easy to set up and operate message brokers in the cloud. Amazon MQ manages the administration and maintenance of ActiveMQ, which means the underlying infrastructure is automatically provisioned for high availability and message durability to support the reliability of your applications.

We encourage you to consider upgrading ActiveMQ with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console. If your broker has automatic minor version upgrade enabled, it will be automatically upgraded during your next maintenance window. To learn more about upgrading, please see: Editing Broker Engine Version, CloudWatch Logs, and Maintenance Preferences in the Amazon MQ Developer Guide.

Apache ActiveMQ 5.15.9 includes the fixes and features of all previous releases of ActiveMQ. Amazon MQ now provides support for versions 5.15.0, 5.15.6, 5.15.8, and 5.15.9. To learn more, read the ActiveMQ 5.15.9 Release Notes.
