AppVeyor icon colour in Slack

I used to see green AppVeyor icons in Slack for successful builds and red icons for failed builds, but now I'm always seeing blue icons.

Has anything changed in AppVeyor that I should be aware of? Or is this a Slack issue?

    Yes, it's been re-implemented with attachments: - which is "official" approach for bot notifications recommended by Slack team.

    Is there something special to do for getting those changed icons because currently all AppVeyor icons are in blue whatever the outcome of the jobs.

    Colorful icons can be confusing when AppVeyor updates go in a raw - see attached screenshot. It's suggested to use attachments to communicate fail/success status.
