Visual Studio App Center is still closing important feature gaps as HockeyApp is in the process of transitioning to App Center. See what we’ve been working on in October and learn more about what we’ve committed to on our roadmap.

The updates we’ve made in the last month:

  • Switched the distribution group management for orgs to App Center
  • API to upload custom crashes
  • Diagnostics support for iOS extensions
  • Link to a specific version for your testers
Switched the distribution group management for organizations to App Center

The last missing piece in the transition of user management was to make organization distribution groups fully controllable in App Center. No action is required from your end.

Upload custom crashes via API

Upload custom crash reports if you prefer not to use the App Center SDK or if you develop for a different platform. The forwarding of custom crashes from HockeyApp to App Center will also be available soon, as well as support for the Custom app type.

The features listed on our roadmap will be ready before HockeyApp transitions into App Center. More information on what’s coming next is listed on our iteration plan for November.
