Movable Type v4.0 beta 2

Welcome to a new Movable Type v4.0 beta preview installation.

I'm very glad to let you know that Byrne just announced today the Movable Type v4.0 beta 2 (check the change log here). Just like you are doing now, I couldn't resist the temptation of checking it out right away

Among the people testing the Movable Type v4.0 beta installation I've made available, yesterday somebody placed an interesting note on the Extended Entry field positioning in MT v4.0 vs. the Windows Live Writer model

Here it is:

While I love MT's new rich text editor, hiding the "extended" part of the post in a second tab makes it harder to drag and drop content. I like Windows Live Writer 2.0's mechanism of inserting a visual marker that divides a post so you can see the whole entry including the dividing line. The dividing line becomes the thing you manipulate, moving it around and placing it where it should go in the text. This is a better conceptualization than a separate data field. It's more writerly, less geeky, and poses less risk; I hate moving text around, feel much safer moving the divider.

Movable Type v4.0 beta 1

The wonderful team behind Six Apart, Ltd. announced today June the 4th, 2007 that Movable Type v4.0 beta 1 is ready for public review.

While I'm personally a Movable Type Consultant, great fan of the Movable Type Publishing Platform and good friend of one of the engineers working on developing this platform, I couldn't resist the temptation of giving a try to this long awaited "Athena project".

I must confess that I am delighted to see a redesigned platform containing lots of new features that we, the movable type community, have requested over time. You guys at Six Apart did an excellent job!

Since I've been myself so curious to check the new release, I was thinking to install a demo Movable Type installation and let anybody come and check it. Feel free to check each and every feature you are interested on. The demo space is launched. Enjoy!

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.
