Mac OS X And so the iOS-ification of Mac OS X continues. Apple has just announced that all applications submitted to the Mac App Store have to use sandboxing by March 2012. While this has obvious security advantages, the concerns are numerous - especially since Apple's current sandboxing implementation and associated rules makes a whole lot of applications impossible.

"Can you please update the article, it's misleading and misinformed.

The sandboxing requirement is not something new.
The initial deadline was November, it was pushed to March because apparently things aren't clear and some aren't ready.

You clearly didn't read my article. Please read before accusing me of things, okay?


No I didn't read the entire article; it's a big rant with a small amount of useful content. The title and introduction are still misleading; it should be clear in one of these instances that this is not an introduction of the sandboxing requirement. This has been set in motion for a few months now and it's just getting an extension. You mention it a good 7 paragraphs into the article. Most people will probably skip it, it's just bad journalism.
