Upgrading Notes

If you used a Developer Preview version of the AWS CLI, some features may be different in the V1 release.

Change Description
New S3 Commands

There is a new set of high-level operations for the aws s3 command. These include familiar file system commands like ls, cp, mv, and sync. The low-level Amazon S3 API commands are now accessible through aws s3api.

Preview Services

The commands for CloudFront, CloudSearch, Data Pipeline, and EMR are still in preview while we add the finishing touches. These commands are hidden by default, but you can enable them by adding the following setting to your CLI configuration file.

JSON Attribute Casing

The casing of attributes for JSON input values has changed from snake_case to CamelCase, for example: {"AttributeName": "value"}.

Success Responses

The ResponseId is no longer returned on successful calls, but it is still included with the error message on unsuccessful calls. If a call succeeds and does not return a value, the command will complete silently.
