New Features

Private Content With the new API version (2009-09-09), Amazon CloudFront gives you the option to serve private content. This means you can explicitly restrict who has access to your content. For complete details, go to Serving Private Content in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.

The schema is at This new version is backward compatible with the previous versions (2009-04-02 and 2008-06-30). If you want to take advantage of the new private content feature, you must upgrade to the 2009-09-09 version.
New Guide With this release, we've separated the API reference from the developer guide. For information about using CloudFront and making and authenticating control API requests, go to the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.

Known Issues

Console support for the 2009-09-09 version Currently the AWS Management Console does not support the 2009-09-09 API version of CloudFront.
Range GET objects not cached If an end user sends a byte-range GET request for an object that isn't cached in the edge location, Amazon CloudFront fetches only the specified range from the origin and then serves the request. It doesn't cache either the range or the object.
