AWS Greengrass now supports Java 8 and Node.JS 6.10 Lambda runtimes. Also, AWS Greengrass now allows already-deployed Greengrass Groups to be reset by deleting Lambdas, subscriptions, and configurations.

AWS Greengrass is software that lets you run local compute, messaging, data and state synchronization for connected devices in a secure way. With AWS Greengrass, connected devices can run AWS Lambda functions, which are now available in Python 2.7, Node.JS 6.10 and Java 8, giving developers more flexibility to choose the most appropriate language, and more consistency with their Lambda functions in the cloud. Running AWS Lambda functions on Greengrass ensures your IoT devices can respond quickly to local events, operate with intermittent connectivity, and minimize the cost of transmitting IoT data to the cloud. With AWS Greengrass, now you can reset deployment features and clean-up your cloud resources to delete Greengrass Groups no longer in production. You can also clean up the Greengrass Core so that it goes back to the pre-deployment state. This makes it easier for customers to remove customer data from a Greengrass Core device and subsequently delete its associated data from the cloud.
