aws ec2 describe-snapshots --owner-id self --query 'Snapshots[?StartTime>='2017--02-01']'
The above command returns and empty set ( '[]' ) when run with v0.9.1, and a list of appropriate snapshots with run with v0.9.0.

I have the same problem fetching AMIs by date. It appears Date comparisons (except ==) are broken in 0.9.1 (and work fine in 0.9.0)

I'll add this behavior back.

What's going on here is that the spec only defines comparisons as valid on numbers ( In 0.9.1, validation was added to enforce this requirement, so things that implicitly worked before now no longer work.

Given this is affecting multiple people I'll add back the support for strings now. I'll also work on getting the spec updated.

The validation added in 0.9.1 to make this compliant with the
spec actually broke a number of people.  I've added this back
and will work on getting the spec updated.

Fixes jmespath#124.
