Also, good if you could share with us what is your plan for the upcoming versions, say v5.13 and v5.14.

I personally look forward to see the ability of having blogs without a parent website, at least when upgrading an earlier series (say v3.x or v4.x) to movable type v5.x.

Many thanks, Mihai Bocsaru

A blog is sometimes referred to as an online personal journal. It is a site designated for an individual to write about his/her daily experiences, to illicit thoughts and often allowing readers to offer their comments.

The update revealed some security issues but they were quickly resolved by the MovableType team in the next updates. For those who haven’t updated yet, it’s time to do so before someone exploits those issues.
