You are viewing the documentation for an older version of boto (boto2).

Boto3, the next version of Boto, is now stable and recommended for general use. It can be used side-by-side with Boto in the same project, so it is easy to start using Boto3 in your existing projects as well as new projects. Going forward, API updates and all new feature work will be focused on Boto3.

For more information, see the documentation for boto3.

boto v2.13.2


This release is a bugfix-only release, correcting several problems in EC2 as well as S3, DynamoDB v2 & SWF.


There was no v2.13.1 release made public. There was a packaging error that was discovered before it was published to PyPI.

We apologise for the fault in the releases. Those responsible have been sacked.
