Do *not* use the "latest" version. That's the point I've been trying
(and obviously failing) to make. If you are running a 1.5.5 server you
must use a revision tagged with a 1.5.x tag, or from the v1_5 branch.

If you have mercurial installed, just
  hg clone http://hg.rabbitmq.com/rabbitmq-erlang-client
then cd into the rabbitmq-erlang-client directory and list the available
tags with
  hg tags
pick one that fits the bill, rabbitmq_v1_5_5 in this case, and run
  hg update rabbitmq_v1_5_5

See http://www.rabbitmq.com/mercurial.html for an explanation.

Or, alternatively, if you haven't got mercurial installed, look at the
tags visible in the hg web interface, pick a suitable one, and construct
a URL of the form


> BTW: How do I tell what version of the client I am running?

Since the Erlang client does not have official releases, the only way to
tell what version you are running is by looking at the revision
information supplied by hg.
