Bunny 1.7.0 is released to rubygems.org.
1.7.0 is a minor feature release.
Changes between Bunny 1.6.0 and 1.7.0
TLS Peer Verification Enabled by Default
When using TLS, peer verification is now enabled by default. It is still possible to disable verification, e.g. for convenient development locally.
Peer verification is a means of protection against man-in-the-middle attacks and is highly recommended in production settings. However, it can be an inconvenience during local development. We believe it’s time to have the default to be more secure.

Higher Default Connection Timeout
Default connection timeout has been increased to 25 seconds. The older default of 5 seconds wasn’t sufficient in some edge cases with DNS resolution (e.g. when primary DNS server is down).
The value can be overriden at connection time.

Socket Read Timeout No Longer Set to 0 With Disabled Heartbeats
GH issue: #267.
JRuby Writes Fixes
On JRuby, Bunny reverts back to using plain old
write(2) for writes. The CRuby implementation
on JRuby suffers from I/O incompatibilities. Until JRuby
Bunny users who run on JRuby are highly recommended to switch to March Hare, which has nearly identical API and is significantly more efficient.
Bunny::Session#with_channel Synchornisation Improvements
Bunny::Session#with_channel is now fully synchronised and won’t run into
when used from multiple threads that share a connection.
