    • Your projects can now use one or more sources from Amazon S3, AWS CodeCommit, GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, or Bitbucket and can upload multiple sets of artifacts to one or more Amazon S3 buckets. You can also configure your project to have no input source. You can now use the AWS CodePipeline integration with CodeBuild to create a pipeline with multiple input and output artifacts to a CodeBuild project.
  • AWS X-Ray Now Supports Amazon API Gateway and New Sampling Rules API
