[rabbitmq-discuss] rabbitmq-erlang-client lagging behind server 1.8.0

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for the quick feedback.

A week or so ago when I used the tip (I assume that is what you mean by head
of default branch) of rabbitmq-erlang-client it failed with the 1.8.0
server, but I tried it again today and now it worked. The problem before was
that the rabbit_channel:start_link/6 function was missing the CollectorPid
parameter when called from within the client.

It seems risky for us to run off anything other than a tagged version of
rabbitmq-erlang-client. Could someone tag it at a stable point?
