Announcing V2 of the AWS SDK for Ruby

I am excited to announce today’s stable release of version 2 of the AWS SDK for Ruby. It is available now as the aws-sdk gem on RubyGems.


Version 2 of the AWS SDK for Ruby, the aws-sdk gem, provides a number of powerful features for developers including:


Version 2 of the AWS SDK for Ruby uses a different namespace, making it possible to use version 1 and version 2 in the same application.

# Gemfile
gem 'aws-sdk', '~> 2'
gem 'aws-sdk-v1'

# code
require 'aws-sdk-v1'
require 'aws-sdk'

ec2_v1 = # v1
ec2_v2 = # v2

This allows you to start using the version 2 SDK today without changing existing code.
