The Time To Live (TTL) is an oft requested feature and certainly one
that we plan to implement in the future. However, it will be a few
releases yet before we will support it. At the moment, Rabbit does not
support message expiry at all, however, this can be worked around in
application logic provided you embed a timestamp within the message and
your receiving consumers are able to understand the timestamp and drop
messages which are too old.
