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."

Apple just keeps on pissing off it's 3rd party Developers.


Folks, it's not worth playing in Apples walled garden. Just walk away.

You don't get it, it is all for developers. It is just iPhone devs are about most masochist bunch out there so if Apple does not bend them over every now and then they feel neglected.
