What a great morning for news. I’ve been using Movable Type since version 2 back in 2003 and, despite some flirtations with WordPress, I’ve stayed pretty loyal. I’m now a professional user of it at work as well, as most of RBI’s blogs are run on Movable Type Enterprise.

So the news that MT4 is available in beta and that’s it’s going open source is obviously going to have a big impact on my blogging life. I’ve been privy to some of the details of this new release for a while (Six Apart treat their enterprise customers pretty well) and I can’t wait to start exploring some of the new features, and the new interface in particular.

I’ll be downloading and installing the beta later on, and I’ll let you know how it goes.
