Jay Allen | August 25, 2005

We're proud to announce that Movable Type 3.2 is now available. This release improves upon what is already the most powerful blogging platform by offering a better experience at every step. This new version combines the strengths and innovations you have come to expect from Movable Type over the past four years, boosted by the addition of over 100 unique new features that will help your blogs truly shine.

Best of all, it's a free update for any licensed user of Movable Type 3.x. Personal users will be happy to find that the Free edition now offers unlimited blogs. And personal users who want a multi-user license and access to our famed technical support can now take advantage of a special $30 discount on our Basic and Unlimited editions.

Highlights of New Movable Type 3.2 Features:

In addition to the features listed above, we've made enormous improvements in usability for every common task you perform while blogging, many of which we've described in our list of our 32 favorite features of Movable Type 3.2. What's more, the features that have made Movable Type the platform by which all blog tools are judged are better than ever: Static or Dynamic Publishing (no rebuilds!); Built-in support for multiple authors, blogs, categories, and templates; Automatic archiving and publishing of XML feeds; and better platform support for almost any common operating system or database.

So, how to get started? If you already purchased Movable Type, or downloaded the free version, you'll be able to download the new release for free from your Movable Type account. Otherwise, you can find it on the Pricing and Licensing page. As always, there is a free, unsupported personal version (did we mention unlimited weblogs?) which will satisfy the needs of a large number of personal users.

After that, make sure to follow the the installation and upgrade instructions in the user manual as there have been some significant changes and improvements to the process.
