The HiveMQ team is pleased to announce the availability of HiveMQ 4.2.1.

This is a maintenance release for the 4.2 series and brings the following improvements:

  • Improved the handling of QoS 0 message queues.
  • Fixed a reference counting issue that could occur when retained messages were frequently overwritten.
  • Fixed an issue where the metric for the current sessions could show an incorrect value.
  • Fixed an issue during cluster merge scenario that could lead to client connections being wrongly identified as online.
  • Unbounded the extension task queue to prevent unwanted behavior if the task queue limit is exceeded.
  • Corrected the used classloader that is called for HiveMQ Extensions.
  • Fixed an issue where clients that have the same client identifier (case-insensitive) are only shown once in the client list in the Control Center.
  • Fixed an issue where some views of enterprise extensions could not be displayed in the control center.
  • Improved the display of the analytics view in the Control Center.
  • Fixed an issue where imports with retained messages could fail.
  • TLS 1.3 is now explicitly configurable. It is not enabled by default.
  • Improved delivery performance of retained messages for subscriptions that contain wildcard characters.
