If you follow these links you should see that the publishing portal for Dynamics 365 AppSource has been changed.
My App was automatically migrated from Azure MarketPlace to Cloud Partner Portal. Got this email from Microsoft:
Azure Marketplace will be migrating your VM offers to the Cloud Partner Portal – the new and improved portal for publishing your single VM offers and getting valuable insights about your Azure Marketplace business, on Monday, 17th July 2017.
What should you expect during migration?
Migration will be done by Azure marketplace team and there is no action needed from you. Post-migration, you will start managing your single VM offers in the new Cloud Partner Portal.
During the migration, you will be unable to make updates to your offers via the publishing portal. Migration will be completed on the same day.
Will my offer be available on Azure Marketplace during migration?
Yes, migration will not affect your Azure Marketplace listing.
Refer to migration documentation here for FAQs.

And that is not all. I also got this email from Microsoft:
The Dynamics 365 for Financials Extension Team wants to inform you of some important information. As of August 1st, 2017, we will begin accepting version 2.0 extensions for validation. Version 2.0 extensions is a much improved experience and represent our future direction for extensions. We will continue to accept v1 extensions until October 1. Please plan accordingly.
If you have a v1 app that is currently in process of validation, or if you have one that is currently published in App Source, you can begin (at your convenience) to convert your v1 app to v2. Refer to the site here for information on how to convert your app. We will work with you as well for the conversion so please direct any questions to email@example.com.
https://aka.ms/BeDeveloperforApps and https://aka.ms/GetStartedWithApps has all the information to date around Extensions v2.0. If there is anything you cannot find there, you can always contact the email with any further questions.
D365 Extension Validation Team
This blog series will be continued where I will be converting this App to Extension v2.0 using VSCode. Stay tuned…
