Ah Mahesh, thanks. I did get that notificaiton.Apologies, I thought this meant a major release to the frontend.
Hi Jeff,

There was an issue due to a migration script deployed in production yesterday. This script introduced newer data types that was not intended for consumption. With this Hotfix, the earlier behaviour will continue to work.

Hope this helps.
Deployment completed successfully.  Data Processor Queue is back to normal.
