|Amazon DynamoDB: Binary Attributes||
In addition to strings and numbers, you can now store binary data in Amazon DynamoDB. Binary attributes are automatically base 64 encoded over the wire by the AWS SDKs, but are stored in Amazon DynamoDB as binary data (reducing storage costs).
|Amazon S3: Cost Allocation Tagging||
Cost allocation enables you to organize and track your AWS costs. When you apply tags to your AWS resources (such as Amazon S3 buckets), AWS generates a Cost Allocation Report as a comma-separated value (CSV file) with your usage and costs aggregated by your tags. You can apply tags that represent your business dimensions (such as cost centers, application names, or owners) to organize your costs across multiple services.
This release of the SDK enables you to tag Amazon S3 buckets.
For more information about using the new Cost Allocation Tagging feature, see Cost Allocation and Tagging section in the AWS Account Billing documentation.

|Amazon S3 over 3G||
Uploading large objects to Amazon S3 using 3G can fail frequently. Upgrading your iOS device to v4.3 helps reduce the failure rate. We are actively working with Apple to find a resolution to this problem.
