The underlying technology exists in Leopard and Snow Leopard. Presently, it
is used fairly low-key, and app installers and apps can be signed but are
"self-signed" by the user when opening. If the "self-signed" stops, the app
will have to be signed by some other method...!

In preparation for an "app store" for Macs, perhaps that is the reason why
Apple is trying so consistently to get developers to move to Cocoa and use
Xcode as their development platform...? We know all the Carbon templates,
etc, have been removed from Xcode, but now even the Carbon Examples are no
longer accessible even for learning purposes.

As for the $99 program, yes that is now on the Developer site and appears to
follow a similar model to the $99 iPhone developer model except not so
discerning as to who can apply - at least for now!
