Can I ask please why you don't provide ready to use, fine tunned amazon images? This is preventing me to use it now as I cannot find reliable configuration or information. Also the current image is out of date. Thanks

Amazon changed the image format, and we've been working to update our images to use it. Here's some more detail: https://github.com/rethinkdb/marketplace-ami/issues/1

If you like, you can launch a 1.16 AMI, ssh into the instance, and run `apt-get update && apt-get install rethinkdb` to update to RethinkDB 2.1.

Thanks for being patient -- we'll get the official images updated soon.

This article describes deploying on AWS with a pre-built AMI -- http://rethinkdb.com/docs/paas/.

We have an aggressive release cycle and try to release ever 2-4 months. Unfortunately the process to get an image onto AWS is fairly slow (with the exception of security patches). So the AMI images are unfortunately a little behind. We're working hard to update them as soon as possible, but unfortunately most of the process is out of our hands.
