Happy Monday, folks! Well, after several rounds of beta testing, the first release candidate of Movable Type 5 is here. Lots of changes since the last beta, including:
- New Pico theme.
- Fixes for FastCGI bugs.
- Lots of improvements for backup and restore.
- A ton of bug fixes.
According to the schedule, there should be one more release candidate in mid-November, then a final release of 5.0 during the first week of December.
Besides the app itself, a lot of work is being done on the MT5 documentation. Beau Smith announced that the doc index and a page of recent updates is now available. Here’s hoping they have time to release a lot more documentation before MT5 ships. read more

The online calendar service Flogs.com has announced the launch of its free iPhone and Facebook applications which make it easier to sync calendars on these platforms.
Although you could already sync an iCal calendar on your iPhone, the app adds a range of functionality including the ability to search for local events based on GPS location and then add them to a calendar.
For Facebook users, it’s now easier to share Flogs and events with friends.
These two additions increase the wide number of services and platforms that Flogs.com calendars can be synced with.
