AMQP Implementation and Support

You can use the RabbitMQ client libraries and broker daemon (server) together to create an AMQP network, or use them individually with established networks. RabbitMQ implements version 0-9-1 of the specification, with legacy support for version 0-8 and 0-9. vFabric RabbitMQ performs protocol negotiation with clients implementing 0-9-1, 0-9 and 0-8, in accordance with the specification. For more information about the vFabric RabbitMQ implementation of AMQP, see Compatibility and Conformance.

vFabric RabbitMQ also implements a number of AMQP protocol extensions.
