Apple posts new iPhone SDK agreement, loosens grip

Apple posts new SDK papers

Apple is loosening restraints on the iPhone Software Development Kit, according to a refined licensing agreement discovered by AppleInsider. Developers are now able to discuss techniques with each other, when troubleshooting problems with applications; another developer may have insight on how they got around the same issue. Apple also liberated other aspects of the non-disclosure agreement, allowing more learned iPhone developers to comprise a variety of training methods for others.

The more generous agreement also allows developers to conduct seminars, and offer physical manuals and tutorials on how to create applications for the iPhone.

Apple insists that the NDA was merely present to help protect its heavily-patented interests, but ended up being more of a nuisance, due to its restrictive properties.

An earlier notice gave ample warning of the impending changes, saying that a new agreement would be distributed "within a week or so" of the note.

    So...

    Can developers tell other people when their apps are rejected by the App Store, or is that still a no no?
