Welcome to our new blog post series about all features and improvements in MQTT 5, the upcoming version of the de-facto default Internet of Things protocol!
After last week’s Introduction to MQTT 5, many readers wondered when the successor to MQTT 3.1.1 is going to be ready for prime time and can be used in future and existing projects.
We'll discuss several aspects of the question "Is it time to upgrade to MQTT 5 yet" this week.
You'll learn the following:
In case you missed previous parts of the blog post series, we have an overview of all blog posts, including upcoming topics here.
- When will the official version of MQTT 5 get released by OASIS?
- What is the current state of MQTT client libraries? Do they support MQTT 5 yet?
- When will HiveMQ be ready for MQTT 5? When will the Early Access version be available?
- When is MQTT 5 ready for prime time and production deployments?
P.S. We'll continue this series in 2018. In the meantime we wish you Merry Christmas and an awesome new year.
