We apologize for the inconvenience and issues with the deprecation of the App Center Release Upload APIs and corresponding deprecation of old versions of the App Center CLI and other clients that talked to these APIs. The deprecation was tied to the HockeyApp shutdown as these APIs rely on HockeyApp backend services.

We have heard your feedback and we are temporarily restoring the old APIs until Feb 1, 2021. We are rolling this change out right now as we speak. By Feb 1, 2021, you will have to have migrated to the App Center CLI, latest version of the Azure DevOps task, or use the UI to upload your releases. All of these mechanisms use the new APIs and we strongly encourage you to use those - the App Center CLI has a reference implementation of using the new set of APIs for release upload.

The APIs that will be deprecated are:
- POST /v0.1/apps/{owner_name}/{app_name}/release_uploads
- PATCH /v0.1/apps/{owner_name}/{app_name}/release_uploads/{upload_id}

We will be taking the following additional steps based on your feedback:
- We will add documentation for the new APIs for uploading releases that will help developers that cannot use the CLI https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/appcenter/distribution/uploading
- We will update the status page again as we get closer to Feb 1, 2021 to remind folks of this deprecation

Again we apologize for the inconvenience here and will be updating customers who filed support tickets directly.
