This issue appeared to resolve itself this morning. Builds are now working again, after no change on our end.

Hi @johnjensenish-weconn!

That’s correct, the website was rolled back.

Sorry for the inconvenience this caused, you shouldn’t experience this issue anymore in the future, but please let us know if something’s off.
