Amazon GameLift Local is a client-side debugging tool that emulates a subset of the Amazon GameLift API on your local development machine. With Amazon GameLift Local, you can verify code changes in seconds, without incurring any usage charges. Amazon GameLift Local is available for Windows and Linux desktops and does not require a network connection to use. 

You can now also configure the maximum amount of time players in a Game Session Queue can wait for lower latency regions, and when to search for the next-best region. The Game Session Queue API flow also now returns additional data (e.g. IP, port, and player sessions) to make it easier to configure and use Game Session Queues.
