Amazon EMR 4.x release versions


Amazon is updating the TLS configuration for all Amazon API endpoints to a minimum version of TLS 1.2. Amazon EMR releases 4.0.0, 4.1.0, 4.7.0, 4.7.1, 4.7.2, 4.7.4, and 4.8.0 only support TLS 1.0/1.1 connections. After December 4, 2023, you won't be able to create clusters with these 4.x releases.

If you use any of these Amazon EMR releases (release labels emr-4.0.0, emr-4.1.0, emr-4.7.0, emr-4.7.1, emr-4.7.2, emr-4.7.4, or emr-4.8.0), we recommend that you immediately test and migrate your workloads to the latest Amazon EMR release. For more information, see the Amazon Security Blog.

This section contains application versions, release notes, component versions, and configuration classifications available in each Amazon EMR 4.x release version.

When you launch a cluster, you can choose from multiple releases of Amazon EMR. This allows you to test and use application versions that fit your compatibility requirements. You specify the release number with the release label. Release labels are in the form emr-x.x.x. For example, emr-7.0.0.
