LATEST VERSION: 1.15 - RELEASE NOTES

RabbitMQ® for PCF Release Notes

Upgrade to the Latest Version

Pivotal recommends that you upgrade to the latest version of your current minor line, then upgrade to the latest available version of the new minor line. For example, if you use an older v1.13.x version, upgrade to the latest v1.13.x version before upgrading to the latest v1.14.x version.

For product versions and upgrade paths, see the Product Compatibility Matrix.

Pivotal Is Continuing Support for the Pre-Provisioned Service

Previous deprecation warnings for the pre-provisioned service are no longer in effect. Pivotal will support the pre-provisioned service.

For information about migrating from the pre-provisioned service to the on-demand service, see About Migrating a Pre-Provisioned Instance to an On-Demand Instance. For instructions on how to install, configure, and deploy RabbitMQ for PCF as an on-demand service, see Installing and Configuring RabbitMQ for PCF the On-Demand Service.

v1.14.9

Release Date: March 14, 2019

Breaking Change: RabbitMQ for PCF v1.14 and later requires a Xenial stemcell. You must manually download and import a new stemcell into the Ops Manager Stemcell Library before deploying RabbitMQ for PCF v1.14. This might break automation you have set up to update RabbitMQ for PCF deployments that used Trusty stemcells. To download the Xenial stemcell from Pivotal Network, go to Stemcells for PCF (Ubuntu Xenial). For instructions on importing the stemcell, see Importing and Managing Stemcells.

Breaking Change: Syslog forwarding uses RFC5424 format, and the Legacy Format is no longer available. If you are upgrading and have Legacy Format selected in your existing syslog configuration, that setting is automatically reconfigured to use the RFC5424 format.

v1.14.1 - Withdrawn

Release Date: October 2, 2018

This release has been removed from Pivotal Network because of an issue with open source RabbitMQ v3.7.7.

Breaking Change: RabbitMQ for PCF v1.14 and later requires a Xenial stemcell. You must manually download and import a new stemcell into the Ops Manager Stemcell Library before deploying RabbitMQ for PCF v1.14. This might break automation you have set up to update RabbitMQ for PCF deployments that used Trusty stemcells. To download the Xenial stemcell from Pivotal Network, go to Stemcells for PCF (Ubuntu Xenial). For instructions on importing the stemcell, see Importing and Managing Stemcells.

Breaking Change: Syslog forwarding uses RFC5424 format, and the Legacy Format is no longer available. If you are upgrading and have Legacy Format selected in your existing syslog configuration, that setting is automatically reconfigured to use the RFC5424 format.

Features

New features and changes in this release:

  • The pre-provisioned RabbitMQ service is now optional. It is enabled by default for users who are upgrading from previous versions. It is disabled by default for all other users, but can be enabled in the configuration. For more information, see Turning Off the Pre-Provisioned Service. If you use RabbitMQ for PCF for Spring Cloud Services, you must turn on the pre-provisioned RabbitMQ Service.

  • The configuration tabs have been simplified to make it clearer which properties relate to the pre-provisioned service and which relate to the on-demand service.

  • On-Demand instances with TLS enabled use HTTPS instead of HTTP inside the PCF network.

  • RabbitMQ for PCF uses compiled BOSH releases, resulting in improved deployment times. However, you might still see some compilation when upgrading to v1.14. This is because if both compiled and source versions of the same BOSH release are available and the stemcell version used for deployment does not match the stemcell used for compilation, BOSH prefers to compile the source releases instead of using the compiled release.

  • RabbitMQ for PCF now uses floating stemcells. That means that RabbitMQ instances are recreated based on the new stemcell whenever a newer patch release of the stemcell becomes available. You can opt out of using a given stemcell version for any specific tile or deployment using OpsManager Stemcell Library.

Known Issues

This release has the following known issues:

Packages

  • OSS RabbitMQ v3.7.7
  • Erlang v20.3.8.1
  • HAProxy v1.6.13
