Awesome. Thanks for the response Simon, this feature is going to make a monumental difference to our use of rabbit. I think we can wait for the next release.... when will that be?

Hi James.

The new persister was in QA for a long time, and therefore had to be built from a branch in Mercurial. As of a week or so ago, it's been merged into default; you still have to build from Mercurial but from the default branch.

This also means it will be in the next release, so if you can wait that's certainly the easiest way to get it.

Assuming you're using a build with it in at all, there's no configuration to do: it just works.
