At the time of this release, AWS Lambda supports only Node.js v10 or higher as well. Dropping old Node.js versions allows us to upgrade dependencies with potential security vulnerabilities, making the Serverless Framework more secure.
We recently released our first (minimal) set of breaking changes in the Serverless Framework, in over 4 years, prompted by deprecating support for old Node.js versions. These breaking changes are included in the new v2 release.
Here is a quick article to detail the breaking changes and how they may impact you.
You will now need Node.js v10 or higher installed locally to use the Serverless Framework. At the time of this release, AWS Lambda supports only Node.js v10 or higher as well. Dropping old Node.js versions allows us to upgrade dependencies with potential security vulnerabilities, making the Serverless Framework more secure.
If you have the Serverless Framework CLI installed locally within your Service (i.e. project) folder, that version of the Framework will be run, instead of a globally installed version.
Otherwise, if the Framework is not installed loclly, but is installed globally, it will default to that.
Amazon's new API Gateway product, "HTTP API", has updated its initial payload format (v1.0) for its AWS Lambda integration. We've decided to use the new payload format (v2.0) as the default format.

Bypass the complex middleware and consider a lightweight node.js implementation to deploy serverless functions from your mainframe CICS applications.
Happy Serverless September 2020! We at Coding Sans love working with serverless technology. This is why we decided to publish a report with the latest serverless trends this year. We partnered up with nine other companies who share our love to make it happen.
In this post, I will go through the process of predicting key performance characteristics and the cost of scale-per-request serverless platforms (like AWS Lambda, IBM Cloud Functions, Azure Functions, and Google Cloud Functions) with different workload intensities (in terms of requests per second) using a performance model.
Serverless computing promises greater scalability, faster development, more efficient deployment, and lower cost.
Tencent becomes a Premier Cloud Provider of the Serverless Framework. A few months ago we met with a team from Tencent Cloud to discuss how we could work together to bring the serverless movement to China, and we immediately realized that we both share a similar vision... that serverless is the future of the cloud. We also recognized that Tencent is more ambitious about serverless than other cloud providers.
