We joyfully announce the release of:

openstack-ansible-rabbitmq_server 14.2.11: rabbitmq_server for
OpenStack Ansible

This release is part of the newton release series.

For more details, please see below.


New Features

* A new repository for installing modern erlang from ESL (erlang
  solutions) has been added giving us the ability to install and
  support modern stable erlang over numerous operating systems.

* The ability to set the RabbitMQ repo URL for both erlang and
  RabbitMQ itself has been added. This has been done to allow
  deployers to define the location of a given repo without having to
  fully redefine the entire set of definitions for a specific
  repository. The default variables *rabbitmq_gpg_keys*,
  *rabbitmq_repo_url*, and *rabbitmq_erlang_repo_url* have been
  created to facilitate this capability.

* The default ulimit for RabbitMQ is now 65536. Deployers can still
  adjust this limit using the "rabbitmq_ulimit" Ansible variable.

Upgrade Notes

* Changing to the ESL repos has no upgrade impact. The version of
  erlang provided by ESL is newer than that what is found in the
  distro repos. Furthermore, a pin has been added to ensure that APT
  always uses the ESL repos as it's preferred source which has been
  done to simply ensure APT is always pointed at ESL.

Bug Fixes

* Based on documentation from RabbitMQ [ https://www.rabbitmq.com
  /which-erlang.html ] this change ensures the version of erlang we're
  using across distros is consistent and supported by RabbitMQ.
