During August, 2021, 4 new versions of the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK) for JavaScript, TypeScript, Java, Python, .NET and Go were released (v1.117.0 through v1.120.0). These releases include multiple additions to the Kinesis Firehose Construct Library, including compression and prefixes on S3 delivery stream destinations, delivery stream metrics, S3 source backups, AWS Lambda-based data processors and more. Additionally, CloudFront Construct Library now supports Origin Shield, CloudWatch supports defining alarms across AWS accounts, and Cognito User Pools support Device Tracking. These releases resolve 28 issues and introduce 37 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.
