Every other Wednesday Six Apart hosts a public conference call with members from the Movable Type developer and professional community. These calls are a great forum for those individuals to talk with members from the Six Apart product team directly and for us in turn to give greater insight into our plans and roadmap for Movable Type, as well as some of the other products Six Apart produces.
We record each conference call for those folks who are not able to attend, and for the benefit of the community at large. In each call we cover a wealth of topics, and this week was no exception:
- The release of the Movable Type 4.01 Beta
- New plugins recently submitted by the community to our Plugin Directory
- The upcoming release of Custom Fields and Media Manager for MT4
- An overview of the Movable Type 4 Enterprise Pack
- A discussion about the Movable Type 4 Community Pack - what led us to develop the Community Pack, and what features are we planning for that product
- How to best organize documentation and manage contributions from the community
- Design goals of Movable Type 4 and how we built it to better serve its developer community
- Differentiation between MT4 and MTOS
- How the Community Pack helps companies build communities, encourage good behavior and promote increased participation among their readers
- Sites and blogs like Huffington Post, On Faith, Serious Eats, Learning Movable Type and more
