New Features

Amazon Glacier Range Retrievals

Amazon Glacier now supports retrieval of specific ranges of your archives. Developers can initiate a job requesting Amazon Glacier to prepare an entire archive or a portion of the archive for subsequent download. When an archive is very large, it can be more cost effective to initiate several sequential jobs to prepare your archive.

For more information, see Downloading an Archive in Amazon Glacier in the Amazon Glacier Developer Guide.

Amazon S3 Support for Archiving Data to Amazon Glacier

Amazon S3 now provides a storage option that enables developers to utilize Amazon Glacier's low-cost storage service for data archival. To archive objects, developers can define archival rules identifying objects and a timeline for archiving these objects to Amazon Glacier.

This example shows how to add a lifecycle rule to an Amazon S3 bucket.

var lifecycleConfig = new LifecycleConfiguration();
lifecycleConfig.Rules.Add(new LifecycleRule 
    Prefix = "myArchiveRule-",
    Expiration = new LifecycleRuleExpiration { Days = 2 },
    Transition = new LifecycleTransition {
        Days = 1,
        StorageClass = S3StorageClass.Glacier

var request = new PutLifecycleConfigurationRequest
    BucketName = bucketName,
    Configuration = configuration

Amazon EC2 Spot Instance Request Status

Amazon EC2 Spot Instance request status allows developers to determine the state of Amazon EC2 Spot requests. A Spot Instance request status consists of status code, status message and update time.

Resolved Issues

Issue Description
Fixed Signature V4 thread-safety issue. Fixed an issue where some customers were seeing occasional signature mismatches in multi-threaded code.

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:
