In the effort of continuous improvement, the Marketplace Team is proud to announce the implementation of a new submission option for patch releases.
This new option applies to new version submissions that meet patch versioning, only. Please see our versioning specification for details on semantic versioning.
Since versioning practices vary from developer to developer, if the system detects a patch versioned package has been uploaded, it will prompt the user to confirm it is indeed a patch submission.
Selecting ‘Yes, This is a Patch’ will put the submission into an expedited process. Once all tests have passed, it will bypass Marketing Review and go directly to the Marketplace. Note: This means you will NOT have the option to update marketing information.
Selecting ‘No, This is a Full Version’ will put the submission into the standard review process. If there is a need to update marketing information be sure to use this option.
In order to take advantage of this new path, you must do the following:
Version your package to signify it’s a patch
Verify there are no marketing changes needed
Select ‘Add New Version’ under your product details
