Update: Aug. 11:
I bugged Apple again last night for an expedited review of 1.3.2 and finally got a real honest-to-goodness hominid responding saying they did so. Trouble is, they pushed the WRONG application, Distant Suns-Lite, which does work fine on pre-OS 3.0 machines.
Grrr. No. Double-grr.
Update: Aug. 2:
Alert: Distant Suns 1.3.1 has been listed again in the Appstore but it will only work on 3.0 and above devices. 1.3.2 will work for pre-OS 3.0 thingies once it’s review and approval by Apple.
Sorry guys for the DS 1.3.1 issues. The problem was a really subtle one when going from OS 2.2.1, to an OS 3.0 build. It never showed up until the app was set free by Apple.
This problem has apparently hit a number of packages, and it is only worse considering how long now Apple takes to go over the apps.
In theory there’s a way to get Apple to expedite a review. In the “good ol’ days” (6 months ago), a review could easily be only a day or two. Now it’s up to about 2 weeks. But hopefully I have polished the art-of-the-grovel enough to get them to move quickly. Unfortunately there is no “rollback” system in the Appstore that would make something like this a little easier to tolerate.
1.3.2 has been submitted and at worse, should be out by the end of next week.
