Google locking down Android more with Android 4.2

Apparently has Google removed some features from Android 4.2 to lock it down more. The developer of the popular Android app Tasker has to remove some features from the app that doesn't work in Android 4.2 anymore.. I really hope that Google will stop locking down android more and more. If not I will go back to iOS again, because then I will prefer all my apps and the eco system there. Google please don't make Android a boring and uninteresting OS!
