Definition of Community and Extended Commercial Support

In January 2023, the term general support was replaced with community support to avoid confusion with VMware terminology related to support lifecycle policy.

1 Community Support means patch releases are produced regularly based on feedback from all users, both community and those with a commercial license.

2 Extended Commercial Support means patches are produced for security and high severity issues reported by users with a commercial license.

Next Release Series

RabbitMQ 3.13, the next release series, is expected to be released in early 2024.
