Updated Qpid packages that fix multiple bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Apache Qpid is a reliable, cross-platform, asynchronous messaging system that supports the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) in several common programming languages. The qpid-cpp packages provide a message broker daemon that receives, stores and routes messages using the open AMQP messaging protocol along with run-time libraries for AMQP client applications developed using Qpid C++. Clients exchange messages with an AMQP message broker using the AMQP protocol. The qpid-qmf packages provide an extensible management framework layered on Qpid messaging. The qpid-tools package provides management and diagnostic tools for Apache Qpid brokers and clients. The qpid-tests package contains conformance tests for Apache Qpid. The python-qpid package provides a python client library for the Apache Qpid implementation of the AMQP protocol.
The qpid-cpp, qpid-qmf, qpid-tools, qpid-tests and python-qpid packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.14, which provide a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#807935
All users of Qpid are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
