Happy Labor Day Weekend - MT4.01 Beta 2 now available

A quick note to wish everyone in the Movable Type community a Happy Labor Day Weekend, and to inform everyone that we released Movable Type 4.01 beta 2. This has been an excellent beta period thanks to everyone who has been submitting bug reports and patches to the MT team. We have managed to address a lot of issues affecting people upgrading and migrating blog content to Movable Type 4.0; plus we have made a lot of progress on addressing issues raised by developers as they continue to build some incredibly innovative plugins on top of MT. For a complete list of issues addressed in this latest release, check out the change log on the MT 4.01 Beta homepage.

We expect this to be the last beta before we officially release Movable Type 4.01 to the public. Thanks again to everyone who has been contributing to this process, your feedback has been invaluable.

Hello from UK. I see that this post is from 2007, but a friend of mine told me that this version of Moveable Type is the best one and I don’t need to upgrade to the newer versions. Is he correct and should I stick to this one. Thank you very much for any further response.

As I read this post and a bit of sadness is crossing my mind. Movable Type is no longer what it was. There are no beta versions anymore. Byrne is no longer here and other have followed him out of the company.

I hope all of you who decided to stay and work for Movable Type to continue working with the same passion and give your best so MT be back what it was few years ago.

Wish you all the best.
