More and more people are making the switch to Movable Type or choosing Movable Type for their next big web project because people are beginning to see that MT4 is not just a blogging tool anymore. In actuality It is very capable web site management tool with its:
- Built in support for pages
- Ability to allow users to manage image, audio and video content
- Extensible Asset Management System
- Centralized management capability of multiple blogs and web sites
These features are helping businesses see how Movable Type 4.0 can be used to replace large bulky Content Management Systems at a fraction of the cost.
And nothing illustrates Movable Type's content management capabilities more than the community's most popular plugin: Custom Fields. In fact, when asked the question, "if you could have one and only one plugin installed in Movable Type, which would it be?" more people indicated Custom Fields, or the ability to add custom fields to a blog than any other plugin. Which shows, Custom Fields is not just for businesses because it allows anyone to build the web site they need, not the web site we think they need.
Before we started development on 4.01 we asked Arvind, "what can we do in MT 4.01 to make Custom Fields better?" He immediately gave us his wish list and we got to work. So now with the beta of 4.01 out the door Arvind has finally released Custom Fields 2.1 beta 4 so that others can start using, testing and witnessing for themselves the power of Movable Type 4.0.
