Microsoft has resumed publishing applications on Marketplace after sorting out a problem related to the certificates used to sign apps in the store, according to a thursday post on its Windows Phone developers' blog.

The fix Microsoft has implemented will take a day or two to fully deploy and newly published apps to begin appearing in Marketplace again, the post has not actually declared the problem.

On Tuesday Microsoft stopped publishing apps to address the problem, which led to users experiencing problems with application downloads. Affected applications included the New York Times app, WhatsApp, and Translator from Bing etc, all of which recently issued new updates, Microsoft said at the time.

Developers whose apps were in the process of being published don't have to take any action. The apps will continue through the certification and publishing workflow as normal, according to the blog post.

The problem with Marketplace comes as Microsoft has been working to make life easier for developers. Last week, the company launched Windows Phone Dev Center, a new portal for smartphone developers that promises better performance and ease of use, along with more markets and support for PayPal.

Microsoft and its partners are also about to announce the first smartphones based on Windows Phone 8, which will include support for screens with better resolution, multi-core processors, and an improved user interface.

Keep waiting for that.
