MT 3.2b3 Quick Thoughts

Six Apart continues to insist that there is not a party like their west coast part because the west coast party refuses to stop. Jay Allen et al have unleashed [MovableType 3.2b3](, hopefully the last beta before release next week. While I don’t have a whole lot to add over [my last review](), I do have two things I thought were worth pointing out:

One, the new default template looks damn cool. You can check it out at [Thom’s blog](, which I used the Template Refresh plugin to migrate over to the new look and feel with.

Two, 3.2 is now a big torchbearer for [Atom](; there’s a template for Atom 1.0 (which I’ve updated to), and the default “Subscribe to this blog’s feed” link now points to said atom feed. This is a big win in my book.

All in all, it’s been a very solid upgrade, and anyone who uses MT should feel very compelled to upgrade as soon as the proper release drops. Anyone who hasn’t looked at MT lately should definitely give it another chance after the release as well. Congrats, Jay (and team!), great work.
