Movable Type v6.3.6 Security Update

Six Apart launched today v6.3.6 and v6.2.7 as mandatory security releases.

An issue with the "Edit Template" privilege on websites and blogs has been fixed.

The release note is:

[Important] Fixed an issue where the 'Edit Template' privilege on websites or blogs are still enabled even if the 'Edit Template' system privilege is revoked from a user. (#114845 / #114958)

Affected versions are all the movable type pro and advanced versions.

Six Apart didn't make available patches for v6.1.x or older version of movable type v6, because those already reached their EOL (end of life) cycle.

They highly recommend upgrading to the latest version.

We've got some excellent news this morning.

Six Apart made available Movable Type v7.0 Alpha 1.

The product has a completely new interface and introduces an excellent feature called "content type".

This new feature would allow you to create virtually any other object you would need, similar to the "entry" and "page" object or to the "categories" and "tags" for "categorizing/sorting" items.

With this awesome feature on board, Movable Type is ready to win the competition against Word Press on building very custom projects, those projects that require specific content types (not only entries/posts and pages, but also any other type of content with its own set of fields, such as say: seminars, collections etc.).

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.
