CHANGELOG for the AWS SDK for Java
We are happy to announce that beginning with version 1.11.82, the source and ZIP distributions of the AWS SDK for Java now include a
CHANGELOG.md file that lists the most notable changes for each release.
In the past, changes for each release of the AWS SDK for Java were published to the AWS Release Notes website, but this approach had some drawbacks. Customers wishing to view the set of changes for multiple versions on the website needed to run a search for each version they were interested in. Many customers acquire the source code through our GitHub repository, so viewing the release notes meant potentially opening a browser and navigating away from the code itself. Finally, although rare, sometimes there’s a delay between the release of a new version of the SDK and the availability of the release notes.
We hope that with this change, customers will find it easier than ever to keep up to date with the exciting changes being introduced in the AWS SDK for Java. As always, please let us know what you think in the comments below.
