Not a developer? Go to

One of the things that I hope is evident with this release of Movable Type is that we are taking a fresh look at everything. Naturally that includes the application itself, but it also encompasses everything around the application - from the web site that serves its community, to the licensing to help developers and users. It even means that our documentation is getting a fresh start too.

Of course like the application, all of these resources are also in "beta." This website for example will sport a different look in a couple weeks and our documentation is slowly being added to this website as well. You willl notice that comments are turned on for all documentation pages, and your feedback is always welcome. Right now we have our handy Getting Started Guide, an introduction to MT4's Template Tags and now a guide on configuring Apache.

Your beta testing is really cool. I haven’t seen something like this in other developers. Great to have such connection with users.

I looked all around the site and I didn’t noticed a single beta version of the platform. They probably have canceled the program.

Hi from a MT user from long time, but I haven’t yet commented on I can’t remember this site to have a different look. Have you abandoned the idea to change the design or simply have misted something?

Moveable Type is the greatest platform ever and I am wondering when you will release the next Beta version, because as I see it you continue only with the final releases recently?

LOL you haven’t added a link to IE in your getting started guide, but you have for other browsers. I don’t like it too :)
