New Features

Feature Description
WaitCondition resource Using the AWS::CloudFormation::WaitCondition and AWS::CloudFormation::WaitConditionHandle resources, you can place a wait condition in a template to make AWS CloudFormation pause the creation of the stack and wait for a signal before it continues to create the stack. For more information, see Creating Wait Conditions in a Template, AWS::CloudFormation::WaitCondition Type, AWS::CloudFormation::WaitConditionHandle Type, and Wait Condition Template Snippets.
Amazon S3 support You can now create Amazon S3 buckets and website-enabled Amazon S3 buckets. For more information, see AWS::S3::Bucket and the Amazon S3 Template Snippets.
Elastic IP association support You can now use an AWS::EC2::EIPAssociation resource to associate an Amazon EC2 instance with a specific Elastic IP address or an Elastic IP address allocated with the AWS::EC2::EIP resource. In addition, the InstanceId property of the AWS::EC2::EIP resource is now optional. You can use AWS::EC2::EIP to allocate an Elastic IP and assign it to an EC2 instance using the InstanceId property, or you can simply allocate the Elastic IP and use an AWS::EC2::EIPAssociation resource to associate it with an EC2 instance. For more information, see AWS::EC2::EIPAssociation AWS::EC2::EIP, and Amazon EC2 Template Snippets.
Support for creating Amazon RDS DB instances from database snapshots in all AWS regions You can now use the DBSnapshotIdentifier property on the AWS::RDS::DBInstance resource to create a DB Instance from a database snapshot. For more information, see AWS::RDS::DBInstance Type.
