The new AWS SDK for Kotlin with Coroutines support
The new AWS SDK for Kotlin was announced at AWS re:Invent in December 2021. Using the SDK, you can build Kotlin applications that work with Amazon S3, Amazon EC2, DynamoDB, and more. The SDK is currently in preview and is expected to become stable soon.

The SDK leverages Kotlin coroutines for asynchronous implementation, and there are plans to make it compatible with Kotlin multiplatform projects.
