|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.

|Problems with Amazon DynamoDB over SSL||We have seen issues using Amazon DynamoDB over SSL with Android v2.1. Android versions 2.2 and later all work with Amazon DynamoDB over SSL.
To not use SSL change the client endpoint for Amazon DynamoDB as follows:
AmazonDynamoDBClient dynamoDbClient = new AmazonDynamoDBClient( credentials ); dynamoDbClient.setEndpoint( "http://dynamodb.us-east-1.amazonaws.com" );
|Use of DynamoDBMapper with Android 2.1||While the rest of the AWS SDK for Android is still supported on Android versions 2.1 and later, the Object Persistence Model, DynamoDBMapper, is only supported with Android versions 2.2 and later.|
