We are happy to announce that Movable Type 6.2 has been shipped.

In the Movable Type 6.2, we have been not only resolving many cases that submitted by our engineers as well as many of our valued community members, but also evolving asset management features to more useful.

New and enhanced asset management features:

Upload multiple files asynchronously

You can upload multiple files by drag-and-drop from the posting screen and also from the “Upload Asset” menu. When upload is finished, you can edit the name, description and tags on the fly.

Edit images easily

This new feature provide image editing function. You can scale images, rotate images and cropping images before to inserting the entries and web pages. Also, you can remove the GPS metadata and EXIF metadata.

Default upload settings

Website administrator (and Blog administrator) can configure default settings for upload that including default upload destination and more.

Data API v3

Changed the authentication password

In the Data API v3, authentication password for “/authentication” endpoint was changed from user’s password to user’s web services password. The reason is security improvement. v1 and v2 are not changed.

Possible to filter by date range.

The endpoints that list the objects such as listEntries, can now do filtering by date range.
