We are excited to share that LocalStack v0.14.5 is now available! The new release contains new features, enhancements, and fixes to improve your experience further using LocalStack, before our major release, to make development & test loops on AWS a breeze.
Our Community release features a lot of new enhancements and additions to support our community users:
We have introduced the support for a new encoder for binary content. This feature has been in response to a bug report which reported error messages in the logs while trying to stream the DynamoDB changes to Kinesis due to errors in serializing bytes content.
We have added support for a plugin installer for OpenSearch along with the
ingest-attachment plugin installation by default. These plugins are only installed for OpenSearch versions greater than 1.1.0.
We have added a new validation of API Gateway Lambda integration responses. If your Lambda function’s response to the API request is not formatted correctly, API Gateway will return an HTTP 502 status code. The integration by default will return a
We have enhanced parity for SNS
MessageAttributes consumed by AWS Java SDK. Previously, while trying to cast
MessageAttributes with aws-sdk in Java, a user would run into an issue where the fields of the
MessageAttributes would be wrong.
For an exhaustive list of enhancements, bug-fixes and more, check out our release notes for v0.14.5.
Our Pro release features a lot of new enhancements and additions to support our Pro users:
We have added support to make the Airflow versions for the Amazon Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow (MWAA) configurable. LocalStack Pro currently uses the
apache/airflow:latest Docker image, and users can use the official AWS documentation to check various versions and strategies.
We now have enhanced parity for Athena databases and catalogs. We have implemented
get_database API methods with this feature. These are making queries to get the live list of databases. We will also return a default
AwsDataCatalog data catalog, which is also present in AWS accounts by default. We have also fixed the startup command for Presto to enable logging via
We now also feature enhanced parity for AppSync Schema responses.
We have added support for CloudFormation models for DocumentDB resources.
We have added installation support for custom RDS PostgreSQL database versions. We have also added a feature flag,
RDS_PG_CUSTOM_VERSIONS, which is switched off by default for now. The default pre-installed Postgres is spun up if the flag is not enabled.
We now feature support for SNS-backed Custom Resources. Previously only AWS Lambda-backed custom resources were supported in LocalStack Pro. With this new feature, you can enable adding new resources to a stack and injecting dynamic data into a stack.
We are preparing a major release of LocalStack: v1.0. Some of the features that the LocalStack Community would be able to use include:
- New filesystem hierarchy with simplified configuration
- Full rollout of the AWS Server Framework (ASF)
- A framework for testing and reporting parity with AWS
- All new logging output for AWS requests
- Improved error reporting
- Remove deprecated persistence provider
We will also be rolling out new features for LocalStack Pro, which include:
- Cloud Pods experience
- Revamp of multi-account setups (experimental)
- Introducing Extensions (experimental)
- Access to detailed telemetry of your stacks
- IAM enforcement for all services
