Ruby 1.8.7 reached EOL on July 1st, 2013 [1].
It will no longer receive any kind of updates, including security patches.

However, there are no plans to drop 1.8.7 support from any of the Ruby
Bunny 0.9, amqp gem 1.1
and Hot Bunnies 2.0 will all support this Ruby version like their
versions do today.

Note that 1.8.7 will be supported to the best of my abilities. At some point
libraries such as EventMachine or RSpec may stop compiling against/running
1.8.7. Up until then, there are no plans to break 1.8 compatibility.

That said, I encourage users of these libraries to upgrade to at least
