*.apk, this should not affect you at all, but if you previously used a full file name like
app1.apk you should change the pattern to
*/app1.apk, or specify the full path (can be relative, e.g.
*/app/build/outputs/apk/app1.apk) or part of the path with a wildcard prefix (e.g.
Basically you now specify a pattern for the path, instead of for the file name.
