In the last 24 hours Jun Kaneko from Six Apart Japan announced the 1st beta of movable type v5.1.
This version introduces a bunch of features that as a developer I've been looking for over time.
Among the features that have been introduced, I would mention the possibility to drag and drop categories and custom fields, as well as the possibility to set custom fields display on a per category basis.
Developers know that on some projects we might need to display one or more custom fields only for a specific category.
When I've seen Jun's announcement I've been really shocked about how many features have been introduced in one go and so I must say it was worth waiting for this release.
Major changes in the architecture are expected for v5.2 when we would be again able to create a blog without a parent website (this was bugging developers like me from the very first day of v5.x).
I would close thanking Jun and his team for the great that they've made with this beta.
