v5.1 RC4

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:

The root of the cause was a regex bug in Perl 5.8.x which was fixed in 5.10.0

To 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 ).
I'm pleased to announce that I've made this bug fix release available for evaluation at:

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.
