Does Apple's new iPhone developer Agreement affect iphone touch developers

Hi ZeroC,

do you know, if the modified paragraph 3.3.1 of the iPhone developer agreement affects ice touch developers?

"3.3.1 – Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs. Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine, and only code written in C, C++, and Objective-C may compile and directly link against the Documented APIs (e.g., Applications that link to Documented APIs through an intermediary translation or compatibility layer or tool are prohibited)."

I think there is room for interpretation here. Apple is getting worse though :(

    Hi Michael,

    I don't think this paragraph affects Ice Touch developers.

    Ice Touch is a library, written in C++ and Objective-C, that uses only documented APIs. And Ice Touch developers write their code directly in Objective-C (and perhaps occasionally C and C++).

    All the best,
