iOS 4.2 multitasking support

Add iOS 4.2 fast app switching, background saving (and future uploading/downloading?) support.

4.2 is due until next month, but it doesn't hurt to already implement it. Also, I'm already on the beta. ;)
Version 2.0
Well, as long as this is in beta I can't submit iPad apps compiled with the 4.2 SDK but I have to use the 3.2 SDK.

But I tested version 1.1 with 4.2 beta 3 and it's working like a charm. Of course I'll be sure to submit an update as soon as Apple allows this.
Thank you for the reply. I was just wondering because iPad only, non universal apps like Terra webbrowser and OPlayer HD already utilize iOS 4.2's multitasking. They must've been compiled with the 4.2 SDK, yet still allowed?
I just had a look at Terra Web Browser. Seems like they use a mixture of 4.2 and the 4.1 SDK:

DTCompiler: "4.2"
DTPlatformVersion:"4.1 GM"
DTSDKName: "iphoneos4.1"
MinimumOSVersion: "3.2"

Well, I'll rather play it safe instead of having Apple reject the app.
Ah, I see. Better to wait until it's officially allowed. Love your app and hope to see more development in the future. :)
