HockeyApp August update

App Center is closing important feature gaps as HockeyApp is transitioning to App Center later this year. See what we’ve been working on in July and learn more about what we’ve committed to on our roadmap.

The updates we’ve made in the last month:

  • Add Collaborators to your organization
  • First-class WinForms and WPF support
  • Upload .dmg and .pkg for macOS apps
  • App Center SDK detects low memory signal

Add Collaborators to your organization

HockeyApp organizations can now use the “Collaborators” functionality in App Center and leverage a more granular control over the user level management of your organization. Screenshot of the UI to add Collaborators to an organization

First-class WinForms and WPF support
