During October, 2021, 5 new versions of the AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) for JavaScript, TypeScript, Java, Python, .NET and Go were released (v1.126.0 through v.130.0). The AWS CDK now includes high-level APIs (L2 constructs) for AWS App Runner, a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to quickly deploy containerized web applications and APIs, at scale and with no prior infrastructure experience required. Additionally, the CDK CLI can now perform hotswap deployments for containers in Amazon ECS tasks and AWS Step Functions. These releases also resolve 40 issues and introduce over 50 new features that span over 50 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.
