Bunny 2.7.0 Is Released


Bunny 2.7.0 is released to

2.7.0 is a maintenance release that introduces a couple of minor breaking changes.

In case your applications use Date/Time/DateTime serialisation with Bunny, all of them must upgraded to 2.7.0 at the same time.

Changes between Bunny 2.6.x and 2.7.0 (May 11th, 2017)

amq-protocol Update

Bunny::ContinuationQueue#poll Less Prone to Race Conditions

GitHub issue: #462

Recovery Attempt Counting Strategy Changed

Previous behehavior is not unreasonable but is not what many users and even RabbitMQ team members come to expect. Therefore it can be considered a bug.

Previously a reconnection counter was preserved between successful recoveries. This made the integration test that uses server-sent connection.close possible.

With this change, the counter is reset after successful reconnection but there’s an option to go back to the original behavior. We also do a hell of a lot more logging.
