FeatureDescription
Amazon ElastiCache Support You can now create a Amazon ElastiCache cache cluster using the AWS::ElastiCache::CacheCluster type. For more information about the AWS::ElastiCache::CacheCluster type, go to AWS::ElastiCache::CacheCluster. You can also create Amazon ElastiCache parameter groups, security groups, and security group ingress rules using the AWS::ElastiCache::ParameterGroup, AWS::ElastiCache::SecurityGroup, and AWS::ElastiCache::SecurityGroupIngress types. For more information about these types, go to AWS::ElastiCache::ParameterGroup, AWS::ElastiCache::SecurityGroup, and AWS::ElastiCache::SecurityGroupIngress in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.
Ability to update additional resource properties in a stack You can now update properties for the following resources in an existing stack: AWS::EC2::Instance, AWS::EC2::SecurityGroup, AWS::ElastiCache::CacheCluster, AWS::IAM::AccessKey, AWS::IAM::Group, AWS::IAM::Policy, AWS::IAM::User, and AWS::IAM::UserToGroupAddition. For details about things to consider when updating a stack and steps to follow for updating a stack, see Updating a Stack in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.
Template Cost Estimator You can now estimate the monthly cost of a template by using the new monthly cost estimator in the AWS Management Console. For more information, go to Understanding Cost in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.
