Following my post on WP.org forums here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/api-updated?replies=5
I’d like to have the option to disable automatic api updates. I understand that why you are doing the automatic updates, but in our case we are not using Google+ and Pinterest, and as I described in that topic, we are using version control and deploying to multiple servers from our version control repo.
But these automatic updates will break deploying from version control and another issue will be keeping the updates between nodes sync.
It would be great if the plugin checks for the AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED** flag in wp-config.php or just provide an option in settings page.

Any update here? You have released some updates for the plugin and I just can’t update my instance, because of the updates automatically made to the APIs that breaks auto deployment from my version control.
This should be a simple fix, just a check for AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED flag before doing automatic updates or an option on settings page or just a filter hook which we would use to disable updates.
Or as the last option please let me know if it is fine to take out some files/folders from version control and have it always updated automatically and not from the updates you make to the plugin on WP.org repo.
And for automatic updates, does it check the api files directly or some flags in database? (in case of multiple server nodes, if it is database that will cause one server node updated and the other out of date!)
