For those that haven't been following recent news, Apple changed their iPhone Apps Developers requirements by only allowing Objective-C (and a few other) languages to be used to write such apps.
What seems to be a move to prevent Adobe from integrating iPhone target in their upcoming CS5 release since it directly compiles AS3 to ARM through LLVM is actually annoying much more people than Flash fanatics, since many developers are using other languages for iPhone dev.
According to some people on the Haxe mailing list, it seems that Haxe for iPhone is safe since Apple would only want to ban people avoiding going through XCode compiler, which would also make platforms such as Unity safe.
I'm personally not surprised by Apple stance, since I've always seen their products as a beautiful and nicely designed lock-in, with very low level of interoperability and openness, everytime justified for the supposed sake of the "end user experience".
What makes me more surprised is that a lot of developers are still trying year after year to convince others (or themselves ?) that Apple is cool and love developers and open source, while the company actions have mostly headed the other way...
Anyway, I really enjoyed reading Hugh blog post on the subject, check it out it's worth reading (and the comments of people not understanding irony are funny as well).
