Upgrading from v2.9.4, which had different icons for different templates, to v.2.9.5 I found that all templates have a generic cog wheel inspired icon, probably reflecting the fact that they are all generated by a script.
Small thing but I rather liked the custom icons that indicated what the script was doing.
We had to remove the custom icons due to the latest code signing requirements.
So does Apple think someone is going to hide a trojan attack inside an icon?
Although the measures might be justifiable in this particular case, I can see reasons for a developer to stay away from the tight requirements Apple impose inside the App Store, sandboxing and all.
The day Apple pulls the plug on software purchased directly from the developers I will be looking for a new platform.
