A while back we were lucky enough to stumble onto RabbitMQ, and foolhardy enough to start using it without really knowing how valuable it would be. As it turns out, RabbitMQ has paid off in spades. We couldn’t be happier using it for the vast majority of our inter-process (and inter-team) communication.
To be able to take full advantage of RabbitMQ and the Advanced Message Queue Protocol (AMQP), we rewrote php-rabbit (a Google Code project) as an official PHP extension, php-amqp, which currently available through the PHP Extension Community Library (PECL).
We’re proud to announce a version 0.3.1 release of php-amqp, and invite you to try it out and let us know what you think. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We always appreciate feedback!
