I assume you meant "Is "-not- enrolled in the Apple Developer Program" the same as "hasn't paid $99 this year"?" Correct, same as.
What is allowed based on account type is here: https://developer.apple.com/support/app-capabilities/
I see no mention of notarization, so...
sorry about the typo ..
We (you, John Daniel and I) all agree that "enrolled in ADP" requires the $99/y subscription. The URL you quote only applies to ADP members. But my question was intented to ask what capabilites a person has who has not paid $99. That is, people as described "Apple Developer" in the Xcode help at:
Quoting, they are: "Apple ID holders who have agreed to the Apple Developer Agreement to access certain resources on the Apple Developer website. No cost is associated with this agreement and developers cannot distribute apps." This agrees with John's assertion ".. distributing apps to other people is an entirely different question" but it doesn't agree with experiment!
An "Apple Developer" account can build a macOS app on one Mac and run it on another with no difficulty .. I just did it. They cannot distribute apps via the App Store because you need to be an ADP member to get a distribution certificate. You don't need to be a member to get a developer certificate, Xcode gave me one today on an unpaid "Apple Developer" account. Such unpaid accounts can also apply the "hardened runtime" capability. These two factors are all that notarization asks for, so why can't an "Apple Developer" get their app notarized?
PS: I am a forever ADP member, I'm knowledgable about the purpose and value of notarizing and I notarize all my apps. Why can't all Mac developers notify their apps?
Haven't you ever wondered why, when you just want to sign in to your free iCloud account, or after you've updated your phone, you have to agree to a 34 page iTunes legal agreement? Did you ever think there were people out there asking "why isn't this a 37 page agreement?" Some of the terms on page 17 aren't fully defined and/or are slightly in contradition to the statements on page 31!!!!!
Well, now we know.
Is "enrolled in the Apple Developer Program" the same as "hasn't paid $99 this year"?
And how did I get a Apple Development Certificate if I'm not enrolled?
Pay $99 and enrol.
Is the "Apple Development Certificate" that Xcode got me not a "Developer ID certificate" as referenced in the following Xcode help text?
Apple has made some provisions so that developers can build and install their own apps, or open-source apps, on their own machines. You can do this for free. But distributing apps to other people is an entirely different question. The world is currently overflowing with scams, malware, and adware. The Notarization process allows Apple to check all Mac software for malicious content before it is ever installed. There is a small fee to access that process.
