Code-Signing Confusion

Daniel Jalkut documents recent issues regarding code-signing.

While WWDC 2014 was the best Christmas ever, and while the new iPhone models and the Apple Watch look very cool (I’ll be getting a 6+ and a watch), I still can’t help but worry.

What worries me these days is bugs.

Developers know what I’m talking about. To start listing them would seem like Apple-bashing, which isn’t my point.

Bugs make developers reluctant to adopt new things. A developer thinks: I’d love to do x, y, and z — but I think I’ll let everybody else go first.

I’ve said before recently that OS X 10.11 and iOS 9 could be about bug fixes and performance enhancements, and nothing else, and developers would be thrilled.
