Turn on a Trail across all regions: You can now turn on a trail across all regions in the for your AWS account. CloudTrail will deliver log files from all regions to the Amazon S3 bucket and an optional CloudWatch Logs log group you specified. Additionally, when AWS launches a new region, CloudTrail will create the same trail in the new region. As a result, you will receive log files containing API activity for the new region without taking any action. Using the CloudTrail console, you can specify that a trail applies to all regions. For more details, refer to the Applying a trail to all regions section of the CloudTrail FAQ.

Amazon CloudFront can now compress your objects at the edge. You can now configure CloudFront to automatically apply GZIP compression when browsers and other clients request a compressed object with text and other compressible file formats. This means that if you are already using Amazon S3, CloudFront can transparently compress this type of content. For origins outside S3, doing compression at the edge means you don’t need to use resources at your origin to do compression. The resulting smaller size of compressed objects makes downloads faster and reduces your CloudFront data transfer charges.

Amazon WorkSpaces Application Manager (WAM) is now available in the EU (Ireland) region and has two new management features. These new features allow you to share application packages with other AWS accounts and delete packages within your AWS account using the Amazon WAM Studio. Package sharing allows you to virtualize an application one time, and share it with many AWS accounts. You can then customize the application configuration for each user to which the application is assigned using Configurable App Events.
