Get ready for movable type v5.2! RC1 is here :)

Dear Friends,

Are you ready for movable type v5.2?

Yesterday Six Apart announced the Release Candidate 1 and what is nice about it is that it contains all the new features announced so far for v5.2, as well as fixes for almost all the bugs reported so far.

The latest fixed issues are:
  • 108701 Unable to sign out properly on the published page if blog domain is ip address
  • 108651 Comment replies do not show up in author's profile page on mt-cp.cgi

The current known issue is:
  • 108242 Sometimes unable to send a test email in wizard via SMTP Auth with SSL on Windows

New config directives

In addition to the directives announced in beta 1, several new config directives have been added, as follows:
  • Editor
  • WYSIWYGEditor
  • SourceEditor
  • BulkLoadMetaObjectsLimit
  • DisableMetaObjectCache
  • BaseSitePath
  • HideBaseSitePath

Modified config directives:

The following config directives have been appended or modified:

  • ThemesDirectory
  • AltTemplatePath
  • SearchTemplatePath
  • ThemeStaticFileExtensions

I'm proud to have been contributed to this new release with a bug fix.

There are many other things I've proposed either as new features, or as optimizations to current features and soon you will see most of them implemented on movable type.

This new RC1 version remains available 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.
