Amazon MQ now provides support for RabbitMQ version 3.10.20 and RabbitMQ 3.9.27, which include several important fixes and performance optimizations to the previously supported versions. 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. Because Amazon MQ connects to your current applications with industry-standard APIs and protocols, you can more easily migrate to AWS without having to rewrite code.

If you are running a version of RabbitMQ earlier than 3.10.20 or 3.9.27, we encourage you to upgrade to the latest versions to get access to the latest security, performance and feature enhancements. This can be accomplished with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console. If your broker has automatic minor versions upgrade enabled and is currently running version 3.10.10 or 3.10.17, Amazon MQ will automatically upgrade the broker to version 3.10.20 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. This new version is available in all regions where Amazon MQ is available. For a full list of available regions see the AWS Region Table.
