Apple has once again delayed the deadline by which all applications must implement Mac App Store Sandboxing. previously passed in November 2011 as the deadline to March 1, 2012. It seems that the extra time has been insufficient and the period increases. Something that has been welcomed by many developers still have not solved the situation.
Anyway, the controversy continues. For some developers the information provided by Apple and the restrictions on Sandboxing continue to hamper the implementation much so are considering abandoning the Mac App Store . This reason for which Apple would have released the Developer ID , a measure to ensure that we can get applications out of the store (remember that all applications are reviewed Mac App Store by Apple for approval).
Sandboxing, Gatekeeper and Developer ID. More and more security measures to shield the user and the platform. Something we might see as a concern by Apple towards an increased market share and therefore the number of threats, as some suggest, a movement for developers to make greater use of the possibilities of icloud, dragging the local data the cloud.
