iPhone SDK 3.2 Beta 4: New Gestures Found And Camera Features Removed

According to 9to5Mac, iPhone SDK 3.2 Beta 4 has revealed number of new gestures including the triple tap and a long press gesture. You may see number of plist files in the gestures folder including 3Tap.plist and LongPress.plist. Moreover camera features which were revealed by the previous version of iPhone SDK 3.2 are now removed from the current version of SDK.

With the larger real estate of the iPad screen, there would have to be more gestures to do everything. Presumably, the Long Press could bring up the pop-overs. The Triple Tap could be used to save steps, where the Double Tap brings up a menu to select something else. Just speculating here. Although, I thought we already had a long press, where you can press and hold an image to bring up the "Save Image" menu, or is that part of the copy/paste feature? So many questions, still!

Moreover camera features which were found in the previous release of iPhone SDK 3.2 are now removed from the current release eliminating the conferencing and iChat capabilities of iPad. It means that the first release of iPad may not have a camera but it may be included in the future releases.

...and the latest SDK, they are gone:

The most recent iPhone SDK removes those VideoChat files we found in the previous version of the SDK. The big question: Did Apple remove them for the big camera surprise or did they remove them because there ain't gonna be a surprise? Don't get your hopes up.

No one is sure why Apple removed the camera feature? It confirms that the initial design of iPad had a camera but later it was pulled out due to unknown reasons!
