New Features

Amazon S3 Website Redirect

If your Amazon S3 bucket is configured as a website, you can now redirect requests for an object. Redirects can be set using the PutObject operation. When a request to the object is made through the S3 website endpoint it will be return as an HTTP status code 301 with the redirect. For more information, see Configuring a Web Page Redirect.

This example shows how to set a redirect for an object in the bucket to redirect to a different object in the bucket. Redirects can also be set to external URLs.

PutObjectRequest putRequest = new PutObjectRequest()
    BucketName = bucketName,
    Key = "home.html",
    WebsiteRedirectLocation = "/newhome.html"
PutObjectResponse putResponse = TestUtil.S3Client.PutObject(putRequest);				
Amazon CloudFront Access log improvements for download distributions For download distributions, CloudFront access logs now include fields for:
  • The cookie header in each viewer request, including name-value pairs and attributes.
  • The result type of a request (for example, Hit, RefreshHit, or Miss).
  • An identifier that uniquely identifies each request (the CloudFront request ID).

For more information, see Log File Format in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.

Amazon CloudFront Cookie support You can now choose whether you want CloudFront to forward cookies and the associated cookie attributes to your origin. If so, you can also choose whether to forward all cookies or just a selected list of cookies. For more information, see How CloudFront Forwards, Caches, and Logs Cookies in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.
Amazon CloudFront Price classes You can now choose a price class that corresponds with the maximum price that you want to pay for CloudFront service. If you're willing to accept higher latency for your viewers in some geographic regions in return for lower cost, you can choose a price class that doesn't include all CloudFront regions. For more information, see Choosing the Price Class for a CloudFront Distribution in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.

Known Issues

Issue Description
Installation Requires Administrator Privileges The default install location is %PROGRAMFILES%, which on most computers is "c:\program files". In order to install files to the default location, the MSI must be run by an Administrator. If you don't have Administrator privileges on the machine, please change the install location to something like "c:\Documents and Settings\<you>\AWS SDK for .NET", and the install will complete successfully. If you are running on Vista, your personal folder is similar to "c:\users\<you>\".
Uninstalling the SDK Produces "Unknown Publisher" Message On Windows Vista, uninstalling the MSI results in an "Unknown Publisher" dialog even though the installer is signed by Amazon Web Services. This is a known Windows Installer bug on Windows Vista, and is documented here:
