Transmit 4.1.5 Now Half-Available

Cabel Sasser notes that Panic has been holding back Transmit 4.1.5 since January 6, because they wanted to release it simultaneously for their direct customers and in the Mac App Store. However, after three weeks in review (for a 0.0.1 update!) Transmit 4.1.5 is still not approved, so they’ve decided to half-release it. I hope that developers will, for once, not think “WWPD,” but instead ship updates right away, not to penalizing their customers for Apple’s delays. Though it’s perhaps reassuring that a top developer like Panic doesn’t seem to be getting special treatment (though some top-grossing apps have had multiple updates approved since the store opened), it’s cold comfort for those who worked through the holidays to submit before the December deadline and still haven’t heard anything from Apple.

"I hope that developers will, for once, not think “WWPD,” but instead ship updates right away, not to penalizing their customers for Apple’s delays."

Three cheers for this.

For that matter, I hope developers will not cripple their apps by removing functionality that can't pass the AppStoreMonster's velvet rope.
