Apple posted a couple of reminders this week about the upcoming deadlines for complying with the App Store review guideline changes announced at WWDC.

Apps in the Kids category and apps built with web technologies both have guideline changes that come into effect on March 3rd. You'll want to read both of those to check whether you're affected, but the main reason I mention them here is that I laughed out loud when reading that second one:

Apps that dynamically provide core features and functionality with web technology like HTML5 are best delivered through Safari, rather than through the curated App Store.

We sure have come a long way from the "sweet solution" that Steve announced on stage back in 2007. I know I'm happy that wasn't the actual plan!
