Amazon EMR now allows you to easily identify latest releases that have the applications you need

You can now easily list Amazon EMR releases available in an Amazon region and describe the applications available with any Amazon EMR release. Previously, if you were looking to launch Amazon EMR clusters in new regions, or with the latest version of an application, you had to read the release notes and manually update your cluster launch workflow. The new API parameters now allow you to programmatically identify this information, enabling you to automate your cluster launch workflows.
