Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Recently, Apple changed its iPhone OS developer agreement to prohibit the use of programming language other than Objective-C, C, C++, and JavaScript running in WebKit. This has the effect of pretty much pre-emptively killing Adobe's CS5 iPhone developer tools, as well as several other, similar tools. Adobe has now said it will cease development of the iPhone development tools. To make matters really interesting, Apple has actually replied directly to this news.

From what Chambers says in his blog post, it seems that Apple is going to be selective in what non-Objective-C code it lets in.

Flash compiled is a no go. That's definite.

Monotouch or Unity3D? Maybe Apple will let them slide. I don't really know. But it does show how arbitrary this whole thing is. Apple's arrogance is overwhelming.
