As we all must do when we see fireworks, let us let out a collective "oooooooohhh" and "aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh" with the release of Movable Type 4.0 Beta 5.
This release is right on par with our past releases, with over 100 fixed bugs, UI tweaks and feature enhancements.
This release does not have very many new features as the team is focusing 99% of its time on fixing bugs and refining the last pages of the application. There is one new feature worth mentioning however... the template editor now supports template snippets allowing users to easily insert template tags using handy keyboard shortcuts. This greatly speeds up the time it takes to code new templates and reduces the potential for error when typing template tags manually. Kudos to the team for squeaking this feature in there.We hope everyone in the Movable Type community has a Happy Fourth of July. Just know, that no one will judge you if your idea of fun on a National Holiday is to download the latest Movable Type Beta and submit bug reports. In fact, the team salutes you.
Update: A new MT4 Beta 5 build has been deployed and made available through the regular download mechanism. The build is MT-4.0-beta5-20070704.
