Pretty much everything is different.

You should probably download and read the AMQP 0-10 spec from 
http://www.amqp.org/specification/0-10/amqp-org-download to get a good 
handle on that question.

But AMQP 0-9-1, 0-10 and 1.0 really are all quite different from each 
other. They all have different codecs, different commands sets, and 
different semantics.

The AMQP 1.0 implementation in RabbitMQ shares essentially no code in 
common with the 0-9-1 implementation. Any putative support for 0-10 
would be another from-scratch implementation - and we don't really see 
there being enough demand for it.

Cheers, Simon
