Mac Developer: Apple to require all Mac App Store submissions to ditch garbage collection, switch to ARC on May 1st | 9to5Mac
Apple to require all Mac App Store submissions to ditch garbage collection, switch to ARC on May 1st | 9to5Mac: "Apple has announced on its developer site that apps submitted to the Mac App Store starting on May 1st will no longer be allowed to incorporate garbage collection, which was deprecated in OS X 10.8. Instead, developers will be required to switch to ARC, which was introduced in 10.7."
In some ways, this is hilarious. I took one look at GC and in my own mind "never in my apps, but if you want to, good luck with that". I feel the same way about ARC, which is a performance SUCK.
