MovableType 2.65 released, 3.0 announced

Finally there is some official news of some sort. MovableType 2.65 has been released. It's mostly a security release, but with it there is also an Atom feed template (with new tags for that particular template). Looks like they read my mind yesterday re: the Atom feed.

They also announced the forthcoming 3.0, which includes some nice features (on top of being free):

  • Comment registration. As a response to both comment spam and to the increased usage of Movable Type on large community sites, we'll be adding the option to restrict comments to registered users.
  • Improved comment and TrackBack management features.
  • New API hooks for plugin developers. Plugins will now be able to hook into many more pieces of Movable Type, including adding callbacks for saving and removing objects, building application methods with integration into the UI, and hooking into the publishing process. This opens up possibilities for plugins to add even more advanced functionality than they're able to do now.
  • User interface rebuilt using CSS. We've seen with TypePad that a CSS-based interface gives users very fast application response times, and gives us a flexible interface for making application-wide changes, and we want to give this same speed and flexibility to Movable Type users.
  • Support for the Atom API. We've already added Atom syndication feed support in version 2.65 of Movable Type, and we'll be adding publishing support for the API in 3.0.
They plan to announce more features, but aren't ready to yet.
