Amazon MQ now provides support for RabbitMQ version 3.8.34, which includes several fixes to the previously supported version, RabbitMQ 3.8.30. Amazon MQ is a managed message broker service for Apache ActiveMQ  and RabbitMQ that makes it easier to set up and operate message brokers on AWS. You can reduce your operational burden by using Amazon MQ to manage the provisioning, setup, and maintenance of message brokers. Amazon MQ connects to your current applications with industry-standard APIs and protocols to help you easily migrate to AWS without having to rewrite code.

If you are running RabbitMQ 3.8.30 or earlier, we encourage you to upgrade to RabbitMQ 3.8.34 or RabbitMQ 3.9.24. This can be accomplished with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console. If your broker has automatic minor version upgrade enabled, AWS will automatically upgrade the broker to version 3.8.34 during a future maintenance window. To learn more about upgrading, please see - Managing Amazon MQ for RabbitMQ engine versions in the Amazon MQ Developer Guide.

To learn more about the versions, read the RabbitMQ Changelog.
