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."

No Thom, you must acknowledge and RESPECT the fact that Apple can require developers to get an Apple tattoo on their left butt cheek and become fruit-a-tarians if they want to continue in their lovely freely-amended-at-Apple's-will licence to sell Apps for Apple's "There's an App for that" iPhone/iPad. What? Are you against good-right-kapitalism? Do you doubt the second coming of Jobs?
