Movable Type 2.5 released

Ben and Mena Trott today released version 2.5 of Movable Type on the one-year anniversary of its initial release.
Some of the changes include:

  • An integrated version of Jay Allen’s mt-search plug-in, called public search
  • More accessible default templates that follow Mark Pilgrim’s Dive into Accessbility guidelines
  • A new default stylesheet (it was the date on the sample that made me realize something had changed!)
  • A “Keywords/Metadata” field added to the edit entry screen
  • Improved update and trackback ping features
  • Optional TrackBack “auto-discovery”

They’ve also incorporated the survey as a step before downloading, which should help them gather installed-based figures in the future.
