It's such a pleasure for me to announce that today Six Apart KK released movable type v5.1.
This release is full of new features and things that you wouldn't have thought before!
I would say that it is one of the strongest releases so far, if not the strongest one.

Today movable type released movable type v4.36 and v5.05 as mandatory security updates.
If you are running movable type v4.35 upgrade it to v4.36, and if you are using movable type v5.0x upgrade it to v5.05.
In case you need somebody to upgrade your movable type installation, I'm available.
I've also upgraded movable type v4.x to v4.36. This release is available from:
Within less than 48 hours from releasing v5.1 RC3, the wonderful SAKK team launches v5.1 RC4 which addresses a bug reported by a movable type v5.x user in the forum one week ago.
Nick and I tried to help the movable type user that signaled the issue and after debating a bit what the issue was, JunKaneko joined the conversation, reproduced the issue, opened a bug ticket and passed it to the QA team.
The conclusion was:
I'm pleased to announce that I've made this bug fix release available for evaluation at:The root of the cause was a regex bug in Perl 5.8.x which was fixed in 5.10.0To support 5.8.x with MT5.1, we changed the category filter of "Manage Entries" to an input filed instead of a pull-down menu. We would like to improve the usability in MT 5.1.1 (case 106204 ).
Jun Kaneko just announced movable type v5.1 RC3.
This is supposed to be the last RC version before the final v5.1 release would be launched.
It's again a pleasure for me to invite you to evaluate v5.1 RC3 on this initiative for absolutely no cost.
