As the new version of Movable Type gets ready to hit the internet, Six Apart have let it be known that they are going to run an open beta on it soon.
We have some great news: Movable Type 3.3 is just about ready and the beta test will be starting next week! While we’ll be posting details on some of the goals and best features of the latest version tomorrow, we wanted to let you know that it was coming and gather some feedback while we’re in the preparation phase.
The beta test will last three weeks, and at the end of which, they will most likely release the full non-Beta release of Movable Type 3.3.
Are people excited about this? I know that a few sites still use Movable Type, but once you have it working the way you want, do you update/upgrade to the latest version?
I know Darren Rowse has expressed issues with Movable Type 3.2, and so it sounds like he is hoping this new version will fix those problems. It is pretty sad when you are not excited about new features in a new version, but instead are looking forward to the bugfixes.
