This is a personal website and doesn't have anything to do with Six Apart nevertheless Chris Alden, the former Six Apart CEO, appreciated my idea when he saw it available online.

November 2017 Archives

On the day when I've celebrated by 36th anniversary, Six Apart made available movable type v7.0 alpha 2.

I couldn't expect a more precious present for both my birthday and my name's day that both occur on November the 8th :-)

Alpha 2 comes with a number of features and improvements comparing to what was made available in Alpha 1.
