Apple John Gruber has found out that cross-compilers are no longer allowed in iPhone OS 4.0. "My reading of this new language is that cross-compilers, such as the Flash-to-iPhone compiler in Adobe's upcoming Flash Professional CS5 release, are prohibited. This also bans apps compiled using MonoTouch - a tool that compiles C# and .NET apps to the iPhone. It's unclear what this means for tools like Titanium and PhoneGap, which let developers write JavaScript code that runs in WebKit inside a native iPhone app wrapper. They might be OK."

Right, because, you know, actually abiding by their limitations that you agreed to when you signed up to be a developer, that doesn't mean anything. Just your virtual "name" on a "piece of paper". Obviously, that's not worth much.

Err, these developers agreed to a different agreement. This is a NEW limitation.
