ActiveMQ logo Version 5.7.0 of the open source Apache ActiveMQ messaging server has been released with fixes for nearly 200 issues and various improvements across the software. One of the most notable changes in the new release is the addition of support for Java 7. While ActiveMQ is still built using with JDK 6, it has been tested to work with JDK 7. The support for the newer version of Java was needed as ActiveMQ now uses Apache Camel 2.10 which also added Java 7 support.

The latest update to ActiveMQ also introduces Secure WebSockets transport support; this means that users can now securely connect directly to the broker from their browser. Changes have been made to Pluggable Store Lockers that see storage locking separated from the store and a new lease-based database locker has been added that, its developers say, "should do a much better job for JDBC master slave scenarios". Among the other changes are broker-based redelivery and the ability to configure a Redelivery Policy on a per-destination basis.

Further information about the update can be found on the release page. ActiveMQ 5.7.0 can be downloaded from the project's site and is made available under the Apache 2.0 licence. A getting started guide is provided.
