AWS SDK for .NET Version 2.0 Preview

by Norm Johanson | on | in .NET | Permalink | Comments |  Share

Today, we are excited to announce a preview of our upcoming version 2 of the AWS SDK for .NET, which you can download here.

One of the most exciting new features of version 2 is the ability to have Windows Store and Windows Phone 8 Apps use our SDK. Like other SDKs for these new platforms, all method calls that make requests to AWS are asynchronous methods.

Another big improvement we made to the SDK for asynchronous programming is that when you target Windows Store, Windows Phone 8, or .NET 4.5 the SDK uses the new Task-based pattern for asynchronous programming instead of the old style using pairs of Begin and End methods. Version 2 of the SDK also consists of a version compiled for .NET 3.5 Framework that contains the Begin and End methods for applications that aren’t yet ready to move to .NET 4.5.

For a deeper dive into the differences in version 2, check out our migration guide.

We would really like to hear your feedback on version 2. If you have any suggestions for what you would like to see in our new SDK or have any issues trying out the preview, please let us know. You can let us know using our forums.
