Queue Classic 3 was released!

We at Rainforest have been using queue_classic for a while now, and we are now the maintainers for it and a few of its extensions too. Our first order of business as new maintainers is making it more awesome!

To that end we have just released a major new version of queue_classic that has been in the works for a long time now, thanks to all the contributors and Ryan Smith, its original author.

So what's new in queue_classic 3?

Here are some of the major features:

  • queue_classic workers now support multiple queues
  • better handling of crashes: workers will unlock all jobs locked by (now) dead workers when starting
  • improvement around setup and upgrades, including database migrations
  • a lot of refactoring and code improvement by Ryan
  • many bug fixes and smaller improvements

I encourage you to upgrade queueclassic to v3 and use some of its new shiny features. You can see them <a href="https://github.com/ryandotsmith/queueclassic#upgrade-from-v2-to-v3">steps to upgrade in the README.
