During July, 2021, 6 new versions of the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK) for JavaScript, TypeScript, Java, Python, .NET and Go were released (v1.111.0 through v1.116.0). With these releases, CDK Pipelines is generally available with a new API which makes it easier to define multi-environment deployment pipelines for cloud applications in all shapes and sizes. Additionally, the new assertions library, which is available in all CDK languages, now includes some new cloud testing primitives such as findResources(). These releases also include 24 bugs fixes and 50 new features that span 30 different modules across the library. Many of these changes were contributed by the developer community. 

The AWS CDK is a software development framework for defining cloud applications using familiar programming languages. The AWS CDK simplifies cloud development on AWS by hiding infrastructure and application complexity behind intent-based, object-oriented APIs for each AWS service.
