Movable Type now open source

Filed as News on December 12, 2007 4:04 pm

Movable Type Open Source (MTOS), Six Apart’s open source play, is now out in the open. Licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2, the blogging community then is allowed to freely modify, redistribute, and use Movable Type for anything they want. This is going to be all good for the blogging community with both major blog platforms now openly available to everyone. We can just wonder what the next move of WordPress will be.

    I guess losing ground to wordpress took part in the decision to move into open source? anyways i hope some of the better features of MT will make their way into WP and vice versa

    This is good news for the blogging community :)
