New Features

Change Description
Amazon S3 CORS Support

You can now manage the CORS rules for your buckets in Amazon S3.

bucket =['bucket-name']

# adding a rule, see also #set
  :allowed_methods => ['GET','HEAD'],
  :allowed_origins => ['*'])

# enumerating rules
bucket.cors.each do |rule|
  # get all of the rules for this bucket

# removing rules
bucket.cors.delete_if {|rule| rule.allowed_origins.include?('*') }

# remove all rules

Added VPC attributes to AWS::ELB::LoadBalancer and AWS::ELB::LoadBalancerCollection#create.

Amazon S3 Tagging

You can now tag your buckets in S3.

bucket =['bucket-name']
# add a tag
bucket.tags['contents'] = 'photos'
bucket.tags #=> { 'contents' => 'photos' }

# remove all tags
bucket.tags = {}
Client-Side Encryption Materials Descriptions

The AWS SDK for Java allows you to describe the materials used in client-side encryption. Added an option to S3Object#write for setting the material description so that these objects can be read by the Java SDK.

bucket =['bucket-name']
bucket.objects['key'].write(file, :encryption_key => '...', :encryption_matdesc => '...')

Resolved Issues

Change Description

Thanks to Brian Buchanan for his fix on the default credential provider. Refreshing did not previously cause the provider to refresh the internal list of providers.


Resolved an issue in the #request_spot_instances method that caused it to serialize the :security_groups options incorrectly.


The string 'NotificationARNs' was inflected incorrectly causing bugs with a few of the AWS::CloudFormation::Client methods.
