If you’re running MT on your own blog you’ll want to rush to the MT homepage and download the latest and greatest version. I’ve upgraded my installation here at SEB, but haven’t had a chance to look at some of the new goodies it offers.
Looks like a MovableType Pro version is due to be released later this summer that will offer some of the extras I’ve been wanting in MT such as a user registration system. I’ve been playing around with some other open source CMS systems because MT is lacking some of the extras that I want that those CMS systems offer, but the templating system for them is such a pain that making the switch isn’t an easy choice. MT’s big strength is that it’s easy to design custom layouts for it that don’t all look exactly the same. No word on what the Pro version will cost and that’ll be a big factor in if I stay with MT, but I may hold out long enough to see what the details are and what pricing they are looking at.
Anyway, I’m off to explore the new version of MT further.
