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.
