Happy Monday, folks! Well, it’s here: Movable Type 4.3. Lots of new features and performance enhancements, so you’ll probably want to upgrade to this one. Here’s a summary of what’s new, taken from the official announcement:
- Performance for all publishing is faster than ever.
- Your readers can now find content by author or date range (something Google’s site search doesn’t do) with the powerful new search feature.
- You can create a new site based on an existing one in just a few clicks with smarter blog cloning.
- Page views can increase by more than 50% with the new flexible pagination for comments and entries (based on the testing of one of our clients.)
- It’s faster to insert and re-use photos in your posts, and simple to create slide shows, with the most powerful asset manager ever.
- Documentation is more comprehensive and easy to access than ever before.
Some impressive claims there. I hope after people have had time to kick the tires they’ll let us know how it really performs. [Read more…]
