Deprecation

If you read any of the Apple blogs, you may have seen this TUAW piece or one of the many others on the same theme:

Apple is slowly deprecating frameworks that iPhone 3G-compatible apps require from Xcode and app libraries, and the upcoming version of Xcode (4.5, currently in development) specifically states that it does not support armv6 devices or anything below iOS 4.3.

This deprecation also affects Yummy. Yummy is currently supported on every iOS device ever made, going right back to the original iPhone. (I know this because I still have one and usually conduct final release testing on it.) But that will change as soon as iOS 6 comes out. At this point I will be unable to continue to provide updates for these old versions.

To be clear: the app won’t just stop working but I won’t be able to add new features and I won’t be able to provide any bug fixes. I’m sorry if this affects you, but if you’d bought Yummy in 2008 when it first launched, you’ll have had 25 free updates and it’ll still work on any new devices you buy…
