Submission + - Apple disallows use of cross compilers for iPhone (daringfireball.net)

vw_bob writes: In the new version of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement released by Apple yesterday (and which developers must agree to before downloading the 4.0 SDK beta), section 3.3.1, which used to only restrict developers to using published APIs, now reads: "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)."

This effectively shuts out MonoTouch, Flash CS5, Appcelerator and maybe others too. I wonder what Adobe's reaction to this will be?

64-Bit Flash Player For Linux Finally In Alpha 172

Luchio writes "Finally, a little bit of respect from Adobe with this alpha release of the Adobe Flash Player 10 that was made available for all Linux 64-bit enthusiasts! As noted, 'this is a prerelease version,' so handle with care. Just remove any existing Flash player and extract the new .so file in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (or /usr/lib/opera/plugins)."
