Upgrading you apps to 3.2

In order for your app to render a crisp, full-resolution interface on the new iPad, and for it to read a new retina MIB, you must build a 3.2 reader app update in Publish. Note that you will now have to upload two versions of any customized image assets—icons, loading screens, banners, navigation icons—so the app can load native resolution interface on old and new iPads. You will also have to re-export your embedded Help MIB as a universal MIB that contains both standard and retina resolutions; just check the Univeral MIB setting in the Settings tab in the plug-in and create a new Help MIB. Once you’ve uploaded the new assets, just click Generate New Build and submit the update to Apple.
