CloudFront Added to AWS Console

The Amazon Web Services management console has a new addition. A new tab appeared this morning at the top of the console at allowing you to manage your CloudFront distributions.

Using the console, you can choose to create a new distribution, select the bucket from within S3 and add up to 10 CNAME entries for the distribution. This functionality is convenient, but is not the functionality that I would have liked to see added to the console next as you have been able to do all of this with S3Fox for several months now.  I was hoping to see the management functions for CloudWatch, Elastic Load Balancing and Auto Scaling to appear in the console.  These should be available in the console this year I have been told, but it was wishful thinking to expect them this early in the year.
