A Movable Type Hackathon in Europe?

By Maarten Schenk and posted in Events.

In the past there have been get-togethers for Movable Type enthusiasts in New York, San Francisco, Tokyo… but none in Europe yet!  There has recently been some discussion about this on various mailing lists and several people indicated they would be interested in coming to or helping out at such an event.In the hopes of making it easier to make this a reality, I have set up a wiki page on the Movable Type wiki where all European Movable Type enthusiasts can indicate their interest and/or offer to help.  Suggestions for topics and activities are welcome too (and of course non-European Movable Type users as well)….

Movable Type 5.02

By Maarten Schenk and posted in MT5.

Movable Type 5.02 was released by Six Apart today. This is strictly a bugfix release without new features. It contains fixes for a number of issues including one security vulnerability. It is highly recommended that all users of Movable Type 5.x upgrade their installations, especially the ones with multiple users. Details about the issues that were fixed can be found in the release notes. You may note that the release notes are unusually long this time: the focus of this release was on fixing as many bugs and issues as possible before working on new features for the coming releases (we will tell you more about these soon). We would like to thank everybody in the Movable Type community who submitted bug reports, feature requests and other feedback. Your efforts have made this release possible!
