Version 2.63 of Movable Type is now released. This is a bug fix release, fixing various localization, XML-RPC, Postgres, and Creative Commons errors. This update is also recommended using MT for private weblogs; your IncludeBlogs and ExcludeBlogs settings will now be applied to the experimental mt-view.cgi script. If you are using 2.62 and not experiencing any problems, there is no urgent need to ugprade. If you are having problems with 2.62, the changelog lists the changes and fixes in 2.63.
If you hadn't yet upgraded to 2.6, see the Guide to Movable Type 2.6 for explanations of the above features, and for instructions on adding these features to your existing weblog if you are upgrading.
Beginning today, we are also be releasing nightly builds of Movable Type, based on CVS snapshots. These are development releases and are geared towards users comfortable with running development versions of software. The goal for the nightly build process is two-fold:
- By releasing changes to the software more often, we hope to make our stable releases even more stable than they are currently; more eyes looking at the software, and more users using it, should help to identify and eliminate bugs more quickly and therefore, hopefully, reduce the number of point releases.
- By opening up new features and hooks to developers, we will be giving them more time to implement new plugins before official releases.
