Database Engine Updates 2017-01-12
Version 1.10.1 of Amazon Aurora is an opt-in version and is not used to patch your database instances. It is available for creating new Aurora instances and for upgrading existing instances. You can apply the patch by choosing a cluster in the Amazon RDS console, choosing Cluster Actions, and then choosing Upgrade Now. Patching requires a database restart with downtime typically lasting 5-30 seconds, after which you can resume using your DB clusters. This patch is using a cluster patching model where all nodes in an Aurora cluster are patched at the same time.
Advanced Auditing – Amazon Aurora provides a high-performance Advanced Auditing feature, which you can use to audit database activity. For more information about enabling and using Advanced Auditing, see Using Advanced Auditing in an Amazon Aurora DB Cluster.
