Plugin serverless-aws-alias no longer works in serverless version above 2.0

This plugin for creating alias for lambda deployment on AWS is no longer working for Serverless Framework version > 2.0. The deployment throws an error in the plugin. Downgrading to serverless v1.61.2 solved the problem for me.

I wasted quite some time in fixing this problem. So, I would like to share this info so that others can avoid the same trap.

Upgrading should in general be a positive experience. I have had pretty good luck with serverless in the past, and have been a fan. However, the recent developments have me concerned. I’ve seen questions unanswered in the forum, which is pretty discouraging. Is it a signal for us to consider the paid version?
