The pop of a champagne cork at Noon today signaled that Movable Type 3.2 has been pushed out for general release. Jay, Brad, Ezra, Anil, Walt, and too many countless others to list all pulled together and have launched a product for which they should be really, really proud.

I’m always amazed at the depth of talent here and how Six Apart can consistently launch products which are not only powerful publishing platforms but also lightweight (the .zip file of the full install is a dainty 1.7MB) and  elegant in design.

Administrative Dashboard,
Plug-in based spam filters,
A template picker,
all this and much, much, more

We’re running a back-to-school special and knocking $30 off the price of our personal editions until the end of September or you can go to our hosting partners and get an account with Movable Type pre-installed. One of our ProNet consultants already jumped on the bandwagon and is offering to upgrade your MT install starting at $40.

Amidst all this, there’s still room for humor with nice little touches such as a shit-colored Junk folder and a little retro-badge in hommage to the Netscape of yore.
