New Features

Feature Description
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.

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.
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.
