You can now launch Apache ActiveMQ 5.15.13 brokers on Amazon MQ. This patch update to ActiveMQ contains several fixes and new features compared to the previously supported version, ActiveMQ 5.15.12. 

Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for Apache ActiveMQ that makes it easy to set up and operate message brokers on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Message brokers allow different software systems, often using different programming languages, to communicate and exchange information. With Amazon MQ, you can use industry standard APIs and protocols for messaging, including JMS, NMS, AMQP, STOMP, MQTT, and WebSocket. You can easily move from any message broker that uses these standards to Amazon MQ because you don’t have to rewrite any messaging code in 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 5.15.13 includes the fixes and features of all previous releases of ActiveMQ. To learn more, read the ActiveMQ 5.15.13 Release Notes.
