I'm trying to post new release to Appworld as I have done twice before. I've created the Bundle folders with devices.txt and cod files in them. I then created release.xml file and put it in the root of the folder. Zipped the folder with 7zip (into .zip) then sent it to be uploaded. Everytime I try to upload the file I get the following error:
Invalid binary file (release.xml4870368427114485616.xml)
Contents of my release.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ReleaseNotes>All devices listed running BlackBerry OS 5.0+ will support all features. Devices on BlackBerry OS 4.5 & 4.6, plus any supported devices that do not have Wi-Fi hardware will not be able to use the Wi-Fi scanning/logging.
I used Notepad++ to edit the file. I've got no idea what is wrong - this always worked before.

This issue has been going on for some time now, and frankly is ridiculous that it hasn't been fixed. We reported the issue on or around the 12th of December, and happily received a reply on the 15th of December. The reply is as follows:
We are aware of the issues with the Import Release functionality and hope to have it fixed shortly.
You can still create the updates manually, although will be more work. We apologize for this.
And here it is the 27th of December and this issue still persists. Unfortunately another example of the apathy RIM/BBAW has for their Developer Community. It's a shame as a lot of good talent has left the space and are now actively developing on Android and IOS.
Would really like to hear what the reason for such a delay could possibly be. Maybe BBAW resources are listening to all of the garbage being written about the demise of RIM, and have given up hope. And given up making an honest effort to keep BBAW running smoothly.
