New Features

Amazon EC2 Reserved Instance Marketplace

The Reserved Instance Marketplace now provides AWS customers the flexibility to sell their Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Reserved Instances to other businesses and organizations. Customers can browse the Reserved Instance Marketplace to find an even wider selection of Reserved Instance term lengths and pricing options sold by other AWS customers.

As your needs change, the Reserved Instance Marketplace gives you the flexibility to sell the remainder of your existing Reserved Instances at the price you select. After a buyer purchases your Reserved Instance and AWS receives payment, funds will be deposited via ACH wire transfer into your bank account and you will receive an email notification.

You can also now shop the Reserved Instance Marketplace to purchase Reserved Instances outside the standard one-year and three-year term lengths. Amazon EC2 Instances purchased on the Reserved Instance Marketplace offer the same capacity reservations as Reserved Instances purchased directly from AWS.

For more information, see Reserved Instance Marketplace.

Support for VPN connections using static routing configuration

With this release, you can now create IPsec VPN connections to Amazon VPC using static routing configurations. Before today, VPN connections required the use of the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). We now support both types of connections and are excited to announce that you can now establish connectivity from devices that do not support BGP, including Cisco ASA and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2.

Enchancements to ArchiveTransferManager

We have added two new methods to the Amazon.Glacier.Transfer.ArchiveTransferManager class: InitiateArchiveRetrievalJob and DownloadJob. The Amazon.Glacier.Transfer.ArchiveTransferManager class provides high-level access to the functionality in the Amazon Glacier service. The new InitiateArchiveRetrievalJob method enables the developer to track the status of a retrieval job. For example, the developer can choose to receive an Amazon SNS email notification when the job is complete. Once the job is complete, the developer calls the new DownloadJob method to download the retrieved content. These methods still use all the robust logic from ArchiveTransferManager, such as retrying downloads from the last read position and ensuring that checksums match at the end.

var manager = new ArchiveTransferManager(Amazon.RegionEndpoint.USWest2);

var options = new InitiateArchiveRetrievalOptions()
    SNSTopic = snsTopic // Add SNS topic that my email is subscribed to.
string jobId = manager.InitiateArchiveRetrievalJob(vaultName, archiveId, options);


// Once I get the email notification of job being completed call DownloadJob
manager.DownloadJob(vaultName, jobId, filePath);

Resolved Issues

Issue Description
Fixed ArchiveTransferManager.DownloadFile not completing entire download Fixed an issue ArchiveTransferManager.DownloadFile not reading the entire stream coming from Amazon Glacier and then throwing an Exception with the checksums being different.

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:
