MT4 beta 1 known issues update
Hi, folks. First off, let me thank everyone who's taken the time to download (or try to download) the first beta of Movable Type 4. We really appreciate your help, and apologize to those who had difficulties either downloading the packages or installing the beta.
All that being said, here is a run-down of the top issues that you guys have been reporting so far:
* "Failed to create stats file" errors in activity log. If you see this error, you should create a support directory in mt-static and make it writable by MT. If you keep your mt-static directory somewhere other than the directory where the MT cgi's live, then you will need to set StaticFilePath in your mt-config.cgi appropriately. We will handle this situation better in the next beta--apologies for the inconvenience.
* Comments listing screen is broken ("Can't locate object method
"load" via package "MT::Entry" at lib/MT/App/CMS.pm line 9524" error)
* Deleting blog causes error ("Can't use string ("MT::Asset") as a
HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at lib/MT/Object.pm line 798")
* StyleCatcher is broken.
* Tag searching on blog is broken.
If you do stumble across one or more of these issues, rest assured that we know about them and they will be fixed in the next beta drop. And the list above is by no means a complete list of all the bugs (you guys have been so productive in your bug reporting that even our crack QA team has had trouble keeping up) just a list of the issues that nearly everyone seems to be stumbling across.
