Apple Reminds Developers about the Sandbox Deadline for Apps
Apple is sending out emails to registered developers reminding them of the enforcement of the new sandboxing system rules being implemented on June 1, 2012. The email is seen as confirmation that the sandboxing effort will go into effect after Apple pushed back the original November 2011 deadline to Marc, which was subsequently extended yet again to June.
The email reads the following:
As a reminder, the deadline for sandboxing your apps on the Mac App Store is June 1.
If you have an existing app on the Mac App Store that is not sandboxed, you may still submit bug fix updates after June 1. If you have technical issues that prevent you from sandboxing your app by June 1, let us know.
Although sandboxing only covers programs installed through the Mac App Store, Apple will be implementing a system-wide solution called Gatekeeper in its next-gen operating system called OS X Mountain Lion. Aon the surface, it appears to be a traditional anti-virus program. Gatekeeper goes much deeper and at its most secure setting, will only download and install verified code that carries digital signatures obtained through Apple’s Developer ID program. Such a move will hopefully provide the extra security that is much needed as malware continues to threaten more Mac users as of late.

So what does this do to jailbreaking tools? Will you still be able to install them?

a sandbox is a type of prison, designed to keep things out. conversely, a jailbreak is a tool to let things in. too easy ...

Ok, I'm sorry, but do we really need this level of baby-sitting from an operating system? This is no longer about making something that "just works", but of how much control we can take away from the users. One of the primary tenants of software design has always been that the user must remain in control of their system and the software that they run. A desktop OS shouldn't be treated like a mobile OS.
