New Features

Feature Description
AWS Explorer The AWS Explorer presents a tree view of your AWS resources such as Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Amazon SimpleDB, and Amazon RDS. With the AWS Explorer you can view and edit resources within these services. For more information, go to The AWS Explorer.
Multiple AWS Accounts Supported You can now manage multiple accounts with the AWS Toolkit and easily switch between them. The AWS Explorer automatically updates to reflect whatever account is active. With multiple accounts, you can maintain a clean separation between AWS resouces used for development and those used for production.

Remote Debugging for Elastic Beanstalk This version of the AWS Toolkit enhances Elastic Beanstalk support by enabling remote debugging for web applications deployed using Elastic Beanstalk. For more information, go to Remote Debugging.
Editors for Amazon S3, Amazon SNS, and Amazon SQS Through the AWS Explorer, you can access editors for Amazon S3, Amazon SNS, and Amazon SQS. The editors enable you to create and delete buckets, notification topics and subscriptions, and queues. For more information, go to Viewing and Editing S3 Buckets, Viewing and Adding SNS Entries, and Build and Run the Amazon Simple Queue Service Sample.
Query Editor for Amazon SimpleDB Through the AWS Explorer, you can view your SimpleDB domains, run queries against them, and then edit the query results to update data in the domains. For more information, go to Viewing and Editing a SimpleDB Domain.
RDS Database Support Through the AWS Explorer, you can connect to database instances running on Amazon RDS. For more information, go to Connecting to Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS).
Enhanced SSH Support This new version enhances support for connecting to EC2 instances. When connecting to an EC2 instance, you can now choose which user to connect as (Open Shell As...).
