Azure Functions runtime 2.0 is now available on IoT Edge.
The cross platform and improved Azure Functions runtime is now generally available, allowing you to use your cross-platform .NET Core assets within your Functions apps.
Azure Functions now supports consumption plan for deploying to Linux.
Azure Functions now supports Python development using Python 3.6 on the Functions v2 (cross-platform) runtime.
The upcoming release of the Azure Functions Runtime 2.0 introduces some major improvements, but some of these changes will cause breaks to existing apps deployed with the v2 runtime.
The .NET Framework 4.7.2 update is scheduled to deploy to Azure App Service apps gradually during September 2018.
A new version of the Azure Functions Runtime will be deployed soon. It uses the latest version of Azure Java Functions Library v1.0.0-beta-5, which has breaking changes that affect HttpTrigger Java functions.
Starting June 30, all new apps in Azure App Service will be created with TLS 1.2 by default.
We recently announced that all Azure App Service and Azure Functions apps could update TLS configuration. Reporting tools should now correctly indicate that lower versions of TLS are blocked.
HTTP/2 configuration is available in the Azure portal, to make the selection of HTTP/2 a seamless process with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Sites that have SNI-SSL selected will not be able to work with TLS 1.0 selected, if receiving traffic from older browser versions.
Explicitly set the TLS version for individual Azure App Service and Azure Functions hosted applications.
Support for the HTTP/2 protocol, the top customer request for Azure App Service, is now globally available for all apps hosted on App Service.
Azure Functions will now support .NET Core, allowing Functions code to target .NET Core.
We're enhancing the Azure Functions bindings support to allow developers to build their own bindings, which means if a customer has a custom data source, they will be able to easily create bindings for it in Azure Functions.
App Service and Azure Functions support creating and using system-managed identities to work with other Azure resources. This allows apps to integrate with services without requiring any service principal management.
Azure Functions has a new portal experience that is more streamlined and more integrated with the rest of the Azure portal.
With minimal effort, you can add Application Insights to your Azure functions and have a powerful tool for monitoring your applications.
Support for editing and hosting Open API 2.0 (Swagger) metadata in Azure Functions is in preview.
Azure Functions Proxies, now in public preview, makes it easier to develop APIs by using Azure Functions. Functions Proxies lets you define a single API surface for multiple function apps.
