v5.1 RC1 ready for evaluation

Everytime there is a new version of movable type released, I feel a great joy.

This joy is even higher when it is about movable type v5.1.


Because starting from movable type v5.1, the product would allow us to be as flexible as we've used to be until v5.x change the product architecture.

While v5.1 would continue the v5.x architecture, it would allow developers and clients the option to maintain the architecture from v4.x.

What is all this about?

It is about having a parent website in order to have a blog. This is the new architecture in v5.x and it is something that many people that are already having a blog don't like.

On the other hand, I like the v5.x architecture because it could allow people to have both a website and a blog in one go, by simply installing movable type v5.x.

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.
