New Features

Feature Description

Request retries

Added support for automatically retrying requests where AWS responded with a 500 or 503 HTTP status code.

The time between retried requests grows exponentially until either the SDK receives a valid status code, or until the maximum number of retries has been attempted.

HTTP header logging

By calling the enable_debug_mode() configuration option, the SDK can log all of the HTTP request/response headers to STDERR.

Simplified XPath queries

You can now use the query() method to execute XPath queries against any CFSimpleXML object. The query() method will return a CFArray object that now has first(), last(), each() and map() methods. Calling the native xpath() method is also supported, but doing so will simply return a standard array.

Raw XPath queries have been simplified as you no longer need to determine or specify the XML namespace.

Extending SimpleXMLIterator

The CFSimpleXML class now extends the built-in SimpleXMLIterator object, which itself extends the SimpleXMLElement object while adding additional iterator methods. Learn more.

Bug fixes and feature enhancements

More thorough notes can be found in, bundled with the SDK.
