Microsoft resumes publishing new Windows Phone apps

Earlier this week, Microsoft temporarily halted the publishing of new apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace when a glitch caused some phones to not install new apps or updates of exiting ones.

The problem was with the digital certificates used to sign apps and affected only phones that upgraded to Windows Phone 7.5 from older handsets, according to the official Windows Phone Blog.

That problem has now apparently been fixed. From the Windows Phone Blog:

We fixed the digital certificate problem and last evening resumed publishing new apps. It will take a day or two for the repair to fully deploy and newly-published apps to begin appearing in Marketplace again. If your app was in the process of being published, you don’t need to take any action. We have applied the fix and the app will continue through the certification and publishing workflow as normal.
