About Movable Type 5.2
In Movable Type 5.2, we aim to strengthen cloud computing environmental features and add support for the next generation of web servers, along with many other features based on requests we received from the Movable Type community.
These features will enable users to use Movable Type in cloud computing environments, allowing flexible system construction, on-demand system resources, and stable system operation.
Through this update, Movable Type will continue evolving into a flexible publishing platform capable of supporting any size blog; from small to corporate and everything in between.
Beta testing for Movable Type 5.2 will begin today, with the official release in fall.
We encourage you to try out the beta once it becomes available, and to send us feedback on your experience.
New features of Movable Type 5.2

Fully refined and easy to use; enables more efficient website management.
To meet high-degree security policies, site paths can now be restricted when creating blogs or websites.

Improved performance of custom fields.
As it is impossible for us to test Movable Type over all combinations of computing environments, the feedback we receive from testers is very important. Please don't hesitate to report any issues or bugs you encounter.
We look forward to hearing from you!
