FIXED: We found a condition in which by upgrading a blog from before 3.2, a time in which a search results template did not exist in the edit templates area, by installing this new system template search would no longer function because it was reliant upon Header/Footer/Sidebar modules to be present, which are NOT installed automatically. The fix was simple: the search results system template is not installed for you and MT will continue to rely on your Search Template found on the file system for generating your search results.
56189: Can't write an entry on IIS5/6 with perlis.dll
FIXED: A user reported problems under IIS in which MT would work under perl.exe, but not under the ISAPI module perlis.dll. This ended up being related to an obscure localization issue that has been fixed.
56158: Restore screen lost the banner and menu of the admin screen in IE
FIXED: IE bug fixed in how the restore screen was display.
56079: Blog Templates: Standardize metadata on detail vs list pages
CHANGE: Synchronized some styles between various themes, to make display of entry meta data consistent across templates within a theme.
56300: In dynamic publishing, Sign In link is escaped wrongly
56346: Wrong date formats on blog for French and Spanish
L10N: Fixed some formating issues with dates
56345: BDB tool scripts are still included
We have removed the now legacy Berkeley DB scripts from the tools directory as BDB is no longer supported.
CHANGE: Followed the change made in RC2 (55978), AtomServer and WXRImporter store relative paths and URLs of assets uploaded.
56159: Restore restores currently logged in user - possibly breaks data
FIXED: The restore process was restoring the currently logged in user, creating two user records for the same person - which ended up causing some referential integrity issues. This has been fixed.
56160: Restore does not work well when backup data does not have blog records in it
FIXED: Restore process was not working 100% when no blog was contained in the backed up content. An edge case to be sure. Fixed.
56162: Blog level backup does not backup blog data
FIXED: Backup was not working at the blog level. This has been fixed. All backup/restore issues were related to the same root cause. The root cause has been addressed.
56166: "All Items" quick filter is garbled in Japanese other than UTF-8
L10N/FIXED: QuickFilter for "All items" was producing garbled characters in Japanese other then UTF-8. Fixed.
56188: Dynamic pages have wrong permalinks to entries
FIXED: Entries published dynamically were not linking to correct permalink resulting from a user changing their preferences around preferred archive type and preferred sort order.
56174: XHTMLification is not working in IE6
FIXED: The XHTML linting fix made in RC2 did not fully work in IE. This fixes that.
56296: PHP needs localized defaults
L10N/FIXED: Some PHP tags did not have localized default values resulting in some tags to output text that was not properly translated/localized.
56183: Dynamic Author Monthly archive does not have his/her monthly archive list in dynamic publishing
56189: Can't write an entry on IIS5/6 with perlis.dll
FIXED: An obscure translation tag bug resulted in IIS users usig perlis.dll from being unable to save an entry. This has been fixed.
56237: Image and File Upload with IE6
FIXED: Images inserted into posts via IE6 were getting "lost" when toggling between rich text and html source mode. This has been fixed.
56129: Clicking Entry Name on "Edit Comment" screen yields error
FIXED: Clicking the page name on an Edit Comment screen resulted in an error because the assumption was that the comment was linking to an entry - not a page.
56136: Delete blogs causes error with sqlite
FIXED: Deleting more than a blog caused error with SQLite. The bug has been fixed. Thanks David Rayners for the report.
56087: Blog Templates: Move Moderation message to comment confirmation page.
CHANGE: The "your comment is being moderated" message has been moved to the comment confirmation template.
55683: Republishing popup localized incompletely
FIXED: Some words were not being translated properly within the Publish windows. Fixed.
55690: Image.pm not including png as type
FIXED: Image assets were not recognizing .png files as images. This has been fixed.
56171: Filter message is wrong in list pings when it's filtered to show category trackbacks / entry trackbacks
CHANGE: Made copy change.
56169: CMS.pm error when you don't specify a file in the process of restoring
FIXED: An app error was being displayed when a user did not specify a file for upload during the restore process. This has been fixed to give the user more pleasant feedback.
55721: MT::Component does not return an error when MT::Template cannot be created.
FIXED: Error message improved when creating an MT::Template programatically. Thank you Tim Appnel for the find and patch.
54746: Wizard sometimes proceeds without mt-static successfully set up
FIXED: A user reported being able to proceed in the wizard even though the mt-static directory was not properly detected. This occurred when a user had customized the ErrorDocument handler inside of Apache. This has been fixed.
L10N: String properly translated.
An XSS vulnerability was found and fixed in mt-check.cgi. In previous releases we have encouraged users to delete mt-check.cgi once they are finished installing Movable Type. In MT4 however we use that script to render System Information within the application. We have implemented a new configuration directive called "CheckScript" which can be used to point to a new or renamed version of the script. So for security purposes, users wishing to use the System Information section of the application can rename their mt-check.cgi script and point the CheckScript configuration directive at it like so: "CheckScript mt-mycheck.cgi"
55788: Default style should not remove strong-ness
CHANGE: We have relaxed some our reseting of default styles. Especially around those that normally have a "strongness" associated with them. Mainly address, caption, cite, code, dfn, em, strong, b, u, s, i, th, var.
55978: Store relative paths for asset file and URL
CHANGE: We now store asset paths in a relative manner so that their base URL will change along with the blog's base URL (if an admin should ever change that). This change in other words makes assets URLs more resilient to URL changes.
55865: Select which text formats are enabled system wide
FEATURE: A new configuration setting 'AllowedTextFilters' has been added to govern which text filter choices are available to end users (default setting permits all filters). Example: "__default__, markdown, textile_2" ('__default__' refers to the 'Convert Line Breaks' filter). This is a system preference. A change here will affect all blogs in the system. Disallowing a filter will not effect any entry or page that already has that text filter assigned to it. However, if you create a post in markdown, save, then disallow markdown, then edit the post again, the user will be forced to select a new text filter format for the post.
55292: Need a localizabe help link for upgrading from 3.x to 4.x
L10N: Help links are now localizable so that an MT install can point to either english or japanese help documents (for example).
51227: deprecate mt3_styles.css
FIXED: All old mt3 styles have finally been removed from the application. The mt3_styles.css file that was being kept around until such time has now been removed. There was much rejoicing.
52430: Change <BR> tags to <BR /> tags in the output of the wysiwyg editor
FIXED: Many users complained that many singleton HTML tags in the rich text editor were not closed properly. For example, break tags were serialized as <br> as opposed to <br />. This fixes that.
55308: Search in header doesn't submit onclick in IE6
FIXED - the search box in the header now submits upon a click for IE6 users.
55310: Submitting a blank search from header search offers 26 results, but displays no table
CHANGE - Conducting a search with no keywords now returns zero results as one might expect.
55390: Password Recovery does not work (RC1)
FIXED: Password recovery now functions. Yay.
55421: Manage Asset table does not show asset label in languages other than en_US
L10N/FIXED: The table in Manage Asset screen always showed file name instead of asset label in the label column when user's language is other than en_US. The bug has been fixed.
55823: Add text formatting context sensitive help
FIXED: We had neglected to insert the text filter hellp link that was in MT3. We had intended to include this, but in all the changes I guess this fell through the cracks. Thanks to ProNet for pointing this oversight out to us.
55893: An error occurs if template included MTMultiBlog tag when republishing a template
FIXED: MTMultiBlog tag was producing an error "Can't call method "stash" on unblessed reference" - this has been fixed.
55907: Can't change publishing method from dynamic to static
FIXED: Changing from static to dynamic publishing no longer requires a manual rebuild.
FIXED: Debug information was being displayed within the reply to comment dialog even when the DebugMode configuration directive was absent or set to zero. This has been fixed.
55737: Installation switches to English halfway through
FIXED: The installation wizard had a bug in which users of the non-english version had the wizard switch to english mid way through. This has been fixed. Or perhaps this could worded as, Movable Type no longer requires fluency in the English language in order to install?
55524: Can't view trackback list after deleting an entry that recieved a trackback ping
FIXED: Manage TrackBack screen failed in an error when there is a TrackBack in MT whose source entry was deleted in MT. The bug has been fixed.
55957: Deploy all MT4 styles to sixapart.com
FIXED: Beta 7 shipped with over 38 themes. This made the install quite large, thus we reduced the number to 9, and made the remaining 29 styles available for quick and easy download in Style Catcher. When we released RC1, these 29 styles were not yet deployed to sixapart.com for download so it appeared that they simply vanished. These styles are now available on sixapart.com and through Style Catcher.
55958: Selected Styling for Even Rows in System Context
FIXED: The alternating row style for tables in a system context has been updated.
55526: [IE6] Deleting page(s) does work though it looks like doesn't
FIXED: Could not delete pages from Manage Pages screen in RC1. The bug has been fixed.
55537: Got error when you Send a Notification email for a Page entry
FIXED: Users can now "share a page" or send a notification to their address book for pages.
55538: IE6/IE7: Inserting template tags doesn't work on edit template screen
FIXED: Users of IE can now properly insert template tags using the pull down menu on the template editing screen.
55657: RQ is not working and logs errors
FIXED: Integrated Publishing Queue (aka RebuildQueue) was not fully compatible with postgres and sqlite. It now works for all MT4 DBMSes including MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and SQLite2.
55712: Cloning blog doesn't seem to include any user-created widget sets
FIXED: Widget Sets are now cloned along with the rest of a blog's content when cloned.
55772: Created On is garbled on permissions listing screen
L10N/FIXED: List Permissions screen showed unnecessarily escaped date string in Created On column. The bug has been fixed.
55762: Archive mapping's path setting doesn't respect hyphen/underscore preference
FIXED: Users reported that MT was not respecting their preference regarding the use of underscores or hyphens in their permalinks. This was confirmed and fixed.
55781: WYSIWYG : Delete all the contents in entry posting form when click TAB key
55769: Three icons overlapping on the safari
FIXED: Addressed style issue with spacing around some icons so that they no longer overlap.
55892: Ban Commenter link doesn't perform any action
FIXED: Enabled Ban/Unban commenter again even if the commenter is a MT user (not OpenID or TypeKey authenticated commenter).
55785: Replace does not work
FIXED: Restore function in Search/Replace screen did not work in previous beta. The bug has been fixed. Thanks kota1010 for the report.
55884: StyleCatcher styles are not applied when PublishQueue is in effect
FIXED: PublishQueue did not publish updated template when run-periodic-tasks script is running in daemon mode. The bug has been fixed.
55886: Search feed produces blank page
FIXED: Search result screen has link to tag search (instead of straight search as it should) in the "Subscribe" sidebar widget. The bug has been fixed.
55412: Can't write entrybody once clicking somewhere on the screen (IE7)
FIXED: Users of IE7 reported that the rich text editor could not for the life of them receive focus to be typing into. Ouch. Fixed.
55399: max attribute of MTTagRank does not work correctly
FIXED: The 'max' attribute on the MTTagRank tag now works properly.
47478: Cloning blogs does not include widget manager
FIXED: Widgets are now cloned with a blog when a blog is cloned.
55340: Lower default HTTPTimeout value
CHANGE: Following the outage at 365 Main we learned that Movable Type blogs that fetch a news feed to display on the MT dashboard got really slow as the app tried (and failed) to download the news feed. The default HTTP timeout value was 60 seconds which accounted for this slow down. As a result we have reduced the default value for the HTTPTimeout configuration directive to 10 seconds, to reduce the potential for an outage like the one we suffered from affecting MT users in the future. This timeout can be tuned by an admin by editing the mt-config.cgi file. Also, the widget can be physically removed the dashboard quite easily.
55347: Powered by MT4 bug should go to mt.com not .org
CHANGE: The "powered by" graphic now links to movabletype.com as opposed to .org.
55352: Clicking System Overview should take user to system-level dashboard

52893: Pulldown menu list is hidden when setting WYSIWYG mode (IE6/IE7)
FIXED: There were a number of issues associated with our pull down navigation menus not floating properly over certain page elements. This resulted in nav being obscured in IE. This has been fixed across the board.
53946: Bug report when using OpenID to post comment using FastCGI
FIXED: OpenID authentication now works under FastCGI.
54980: Banner image of Cityscape series cut off in IE6
FIXED: Headers within the Cityscape theme series in MT4 sometimes were cropped inadvertently. This has been fixed.
54990: List::Util is not perl core, but required by MT
FIXED: The List::Util module has been added as an optional module to the list of MT prereqs during install. List::Util is needed by the Schwartz. It requires compilation and thus cannot be bundled by default.
55008: Static MTEntries sort_order combination not effective with category
FIXED: The lastn attribute was causing confusion because people expected it to behave like a more generic "limit" attribute. The confusion occurs as a result of lastn effectively ignoring the sort_by attribute. This is because lastn ALWAYS displays the last N entries on a blog and thus is always sorted by published on. A more generic "limit" attribute was introduced to satisfy the former need by users.
55026: Backup progress screen is broken in IE6
FIXED: Backup process indicator/screen now fixed for IE6 users.
54726: Plugins listing page needs styling - uses old style
CHANGED: The plugins listing screen now looks Hott.

55237: Images are listed on insert file screen
FIXED: Changed title of "Insert file" dialog to "Insert asset" to resolve confusion around the fact that the Insert File dialog listed images to be inserted as well. In actuality this dialog lists all assets and inserts links to them.
55242: Edit folder screen needs minor fix for IE6
FIXED: IE6 bug for edit folder screen.
55246: Enclosure doesn't align so text can flow around it (IE6,IE7)

54272: Edit profile can have return to link even if they didn't actually come from anywhere

FIXED: The location of the "Display Options" link o the permission page has been moved to its more common and standard location.
53029: Sign-in border slightly broken on IE6
FIXED: This will be the last of the IE6 style notes that we have made in RC2. Suffice it to say there have been a lot because, well, its IE6 and we all know how pesky it can be.
53583: Cleanup of Base Stylesheet template
FIXED: Removed all TypePad specific styles from the base_weblog stylesheet - a long standing gripe from Style and Theme developers.
53776: Dynamic publishing with php extension
BY DESIGN: Users should be aware that dynamic publishing may not work with archive templates when the default file extension for archives is ".php"
52770: Unintuitive rebuild and view site icons
FIXED: The rebuild and view sites icons have been updated. Or did these get updated in RC1. Oh heck. I forget.
55358: Folders listing screen should say search Pages, not entries
FIXED: Search box on folders listing screen now says "Search Pages".
55360: This Is You widget says "post" not "entry"
FIXED: The "This is You" dashboard widget now uses the term "entry" as opposed to "post" in order to be more consistent with the use of those terms elsewhere. The term "entry" is preferred over the term "post" since the word post can be used in a noun and verb context. Who wants to post a post?
55380: Edit WidgetManager screen needs to look better
FIXED: Widget Manager screens have been updated a bit to look better.
55384: A thumbnail cache file was not deleted when asset is deleted

55404: MTCommentAuthorIdentity returns "?" for anonymous commenters in dynamic publishing

FIXED: IE6 users reported that the hot spot for adding categories on the entry editing screen did not overlap with the icon/button a user is supposed to click in order to create a folder. Fixed.

55392: Resetting to default options does not reset action bar placement until the screen is reloaded

He admits, it seems like an obscure use case, but many blogs back date posts in a crazy way - even before 1900. Anyways, long story short: this is fixed. Feel free to date your posts to 1 AD if you want.
55480: "Widgets" in "Design" menu is confusing

55688: Nofollow is applied to URLs in trackbacks if nofollow setting is disabled

FIXED: When saving an entry or a page, the publish date is validated and an error message is displayed accordingly.
55324: Trackback listing screen shows trackbacks that are not spam
FIXED: The TrackBack listing screen's table was titled "All TrackBacks" which was technically incorrect because by default it only showed TrackBacks that were published or unpublished, but that are not spam. Yes, some TrackBacks are actually NOT spam.
55301: Path not writable error spills out of chromeless frame
FIXED: Sometimes the path displayed in errors are too long for the message windows... this happened in the install wizard. We have done our best from keeping these paths from overflowing in weird ways.

FIXED: Swept app to make sure we are using namenclature properly around permissions, priveleges, roles, etc. Ug.
54900: System Information screen not working under FastCGI
FIXED: System information screen now works under FastCGI. A new mt configuration directive was added "MTCheckScript" that points to your mt-check.cgi script. This can be used to point to a .fcgi version of the file, but also if users wish to rename this file for security reasons and keep the system information screen operational within the app.
54939: RichText Editor mode (tag vs wysiwyg) is not distinguishable sometimes
FIXED: Fixed the icons used on the Rich Text editor that are used to toggle between rich text and source editing mode. Also added a hover state.

FIXED: The extensible archives plugin and the associated plugins like Date-based category and author author archives plugins have been folded into the core and removed from the plugins directory. Users upgrading from Beta 7 and before should remove these "old" plugins manually from their plugins directory.
53902: Integration of Rebuild Queue
FEATURE: The Rebuild Queue plugin has been fully integrated into the application. Rebuild Queue provides MT with a scalable asynchronous background publishing system. It allows any and all pages within a blog to be published by a set of dedicated workers that can be distributed across a number of different machines. Furthermore, the Rebuild Queue plugin has been rearchitected to utilize "The Schwartz" - an open source job and event management system create by Six Apart and used to power Vox, LiveJournal and TypePad.
48562: [UI] Backup/Restore feature needs to look better
FIXED: The Movable Type Backup and Restore features have been fully updated to fit MT4's new look and feel.
52947: Settings Tweaks
CHANGE: Over the course of the beta process we received feedback about the organization of blog and system preferences. We also have gained a lot more experience in the process of setting up and configured new blogs. Taking into account all of this feedback and experience we have slightly reorganized a number of the settings found under Blog Preferences and System Settings.
55084: MT needs to track and expose the manner of authentication for users
FEATURE: A new database column named 'auth_type' has been added to the mt_author table. This new column stores a user's authentiation method. For authors, this would be MT. For commenters, this might be MT, Vox, LiveJournal, TypeKey, Vox, or perhaps something else. With this new information we display the logo of the service used to authenticate to movable type next to the user's both on the published blog and within the application. This will help differentiate for example between the local user named 'byrnereese' and the TypeKey user also named 'byrnereese' both of which may exist within the system.
55033: Edit Profile Styling
FIXED: The look and feel of the user profile area has been updated slightly along with a few layout changes. One notable change is how we treat the password fields which are now hidden unless a user elects to change their current password.
54809: First entry and comment should be L10'ed for EMEA languages
L10N - the first entry and comment that are installed on a blog by default are now properly localizable.
53011: Syntax Highlighting toggle icons
FIXED - The toggle buttons on the syntax highlighting editor have been changed to look more like syntax toggle buttons.
49886: Need a new icon for "Pending authors"
FIXED - we have added a new icon to differentiate between authors with a status of "pending" from other authors in the system.
50451: Implement page specific context sensitive help links
FIXED - We have inserted a "Help" link at the top of every page. This will point to our new documentation site when it is released in the coming days/weeks. When applicable, the link will direct a user to a context sensitive help topic for the page they are currently visiting in the app.
52158: Button Styling App-Wide
FIXED: Buttons within the application are now consistently styled using the new MT4 style.
48418: Filterable user listing by role
FEATURE: The user listing table for a blog now lists users and each of their roles (one row per user), and allows users to filter the listing to show "only users with the role of author" for example. Dope if I do say so myself.
53317: New TrackBack Ping alert email lacks links to view and edit trackback
FIXED: TrackBack and Comment notification emails have been revised to contain more useful links and information.
53271: Kill "User#1" - include display name in initial set-up sequence
FIXED - A user's display name will no longer display "User#1" when a display name is not provided. In such a circumstance the user's username will be used instead.
54724: Add "Add user to blog" link to blog level Manage > Users table
FEATURE - A "Add user to blog" link has been added to the user listing screen for a blog.
55197: Update animated "Publishing" icon
change - animated publishing icon updated slightly
55264: Edit | (Publish or Reply) for comment listing
FIXED - The "Reply" link for published comments has been relocated so that it is easier to find. It is now located next to the "Edit" link for a comment, and it is *always* visible as opposed to visible on hover only.
45146: Nokia Lifeblog Protocol support to AtomServer.pm
FEATURE (EXPERIMENTAL): Nokia LifeBlog protocol is now supported in Movable Type 4. You can post photos, videos and text notes through Lifeblog client in your Nokia Phone, or PC software. Note that the implementation does not work well if MT4 is running on Windows IIS. Posting works fine (so most of the features does work correctly), but Lifeblog client ends up with an error.
54422: Blank error message during upgrade from 3.14 to MT4 using mysql 5
FIXED: Upgrade failed with empty error screen when system administrator had valid cookie when he/she tried to upgrade. The bug has been fixed.
54816: Column widths incorrect when using alternate layouts
FIXED: Column widths have been "fixed" for some of the alternate layouts and styles that ship with MT4.
54892: Performance problem with list_comments
FIXED: Performance testing revealed that that the list comments screen was slow due to a count operation that was being performed on an unindexed column. The test was performed on a database with 100,000 published comments. The issue has been fixed.
55050: A comment will become invalid once it saves a setup.
FIXED: whenever the app saves the settings from the Comment preferences screen, the "Accept Comments" preference will be in an invalid state. Therefore, a comment is not displayed by the published blog. This was likely a bug that surfaced during development and may not have impacted users, but though it should be documented just in case.
54964: IE6 requires "return false" in onclick handlers of anchors
FIXED: Buttons on various listing screen (for example Manage Entries) did not work as expected in IE6. The bug has been fixed.
55294: Kill feedback link
CHANGE: The "Feedback?" link has been removed from MT's application header. It was replaced with a help link. This link was here during the duration of the beta. Users can continue to submit feedback through: http://www.movabletype.org/feedback.html
55311: Hovering over "Reply" causes table columns to change sizes
FIXED: The reply link no longer revealed on hover only. It is visible always. So the issue of the columns resizing on hover has been consequently fixed.
55146: New Widget Set's name is garbled in Japanese
L10N: WidgetSet names have been properly localized.
55195: convert all subitForm calls to mt:command="submit"
CHANGE: Many forms in MT have multiple submit buttons. There is a bug in IE in which all the values of all the buttons are submitted when only one of them is pressed. MT works around this issue by using onclick events to transmit only the proper form parameters upon the moral equivalent of a form submit action. This bug addresses that by standardizing how forms are submitted in the app.
55142: Can't delete widget set(s)
FIXED: Widget Sets could not be deleted. The bug has been fixed.
55106: MTEntryBody does not replace asset-enclosure related tag in dynamic publishing
FIXED: In dynamic publishing, MTEntryBody did not replace enclosure tags which wrapped assets. The bug has been fixed. Thanks ekuda again for the report.

55252: Plugin translation does not work in certain ways
L10N/FIXED: Plugins and the plugin listing screen has been properly localized and translated.
55273: Lots of privilege names are wrong
CHANGE: In MT3 we used the term "permission" to refer to a discrete right that a user has been granted. In MT4 to make things clearer, especially with the introduction of roles, we have changed the use of these terms. Roles comprise a set of "privileges". And permission is granted to users by granting them a role on a blog. This bug tracks the changing of this nomenclature throughout the app.
55288: "Clear Activity log" button doesn't clear activity log
FIXED: "Clear Activity log" button now clears the activity log. What a novel idea.
54970: Refresh of a template cannot be worked on template edit screen

54948: Preview and save fails in IE6
FIXED: Preview and save actions for entries and pages now work in IE6.
55091: Clicking on a page name from comment listing produces error
FIXED: The comment listing screen shows comments that are on pages as well as entries. Each comment has a link to the entry/page the comment was made on. Links to pages were broken because they assumed all the items in the list were entries when they were not.
55108: HTML file for popup image (auto-generated upon upload) is always created in site path
FIXED: HTML file for popup image is now created in the same directory that the image was uploaded.
55043: Edit comment list actions does not work

54839: Entry preview isn't changed after editing an entry (IE6, IE7)
FIXED: Users reported that not all fields for an entry or page were being preserved properly when a user clicked preview and then the "Re-edit this Page/Entry" button. This has been fixed.
54740: Edit trackback screen lacks spam details disclosure link
FIXED: The Edit Comment/TrackBack screens now have the "show spam scoring details" links added so that one can inspect how feedback was scored and ranked by the various plugins you might have installed.
54882: Inserting asset can't be cancelled
FIXED: Inserting asset could not be cancelled because Cancel button did not work when there were no assets in the blog. The bug has been fixed. Thanks to Ishizaka who reprted the bug only a few hours after we released Beta 7.
54766: Date format isn't displayed correctly on Trackbacks/Comments detail screen (ja)
FIXED/L10N: Dates are now properly localized on the edit TrackBack/Comment screens.
54698: QuickPost needs a help screen
CHANGE: The QuickPost link has been moved and augmented with text to make it clearer to users how this feature can be used to make it easier to blog about content found elsewhere on the interweb.
54756: Can't overwrite an image
FIXED: Users reported that in Beta 7 they could no longer overwrite previously uploaded files. This has been fixed.
54520: Unknown user licenses: Active user count does not appear anywhere
FIXED: The current count of "active users," "total users" and "commenters" is now displayed on the System Information page within the application. This screen is critical for users of the commercial edition who need to understand how many seats of their license they have used.
54578: Comment Response template needs Header and Footer installed
FIXED: users upgrading from previous version of MT needed certain modifications to specific system templates that would allow for the Comment Response template to be displayed properly.
54725: File options step lacking edit fields when inserting file into post
FIXED: When inserting a newly uploaded file into a post the file options screen was blank. This has been fixed.
54660: Quickfilters obscures Batch Entry Edit
FIXED: Addressed style issue in which quick filters were covered up by fields from the batch entry/page editor.
53895: Update Search and Replace to use Users/Members instead of Commenters
FIXED: In app search now searches users as well as commenters.
51553: Blog menus not wide enough for labels in other languages (Japanese)
FIXED/L10N: Not all pull down nav menus were long enough for the translations. This has been fixed.
51642: Left nav weirdness on edit role screen after role is created
FIXED: Users reported that in some circumstances the left nav was giznanked on the edit role page. It has been ungiznanked.
53181: .entry-meta might need clear: both; in theme stylesheet
FIXED: Base weblog CSS file now has a clear: both property for the entry metadata section of a post to ensure elements don't float around it.
53520: Entry editor does not sidescroll for long lines
FIXED: The entry and page editor now will scroll horizontally when there is super long text that requires a side scroll to be edited properly.
53593: Users disabled automatically for no reason on login
FIXED: Found a bug in MT that was the result of the no follow plugin that conflicted with the built-in version f the same plugin. It was extremely hard to track down but the symptom was this: a user when logging would suddenly and unpredictably be disabled. Kudos to Brad for tracking this really obscure bug down. Users should remove the nofollow plugin from their install.
53736: Widget Manager Styling
CHANGE: Widget Manager's design has been updated.
53843: Republish messages are confusing since they use the word "pages" to refer to everything
CHANGE: Users reported that the publishing process could be confusing because we called every a page (e.g. "publishing archive pages" and "publishing page pages"). We have eliminated the use of the word page in this context so it becomes clearer (e.g. "publishing archives" and "publishing pages").
53883: Tables don't handle super-long stuff well
FIXED: Many tables in the app were succeptible to being busted by extra long non-wrapping content in narrow columns. Tables have been made more robust and are not likely to extend beyond their designated widths any longer.
53125: Can't Edit Entry if StaticWebPath is different sub/domain than url to MT app
IMPORTANT: The entry and page editor will not function is the domain on which the app and MT's static files are different. The rich text editor is achieved through the use of an iframe and security constraints found in browsers prevent content from being loaded from/written to different domains. Users should make sure then that their mt-static folder is served from the same domain as the application itself.
53019: Blog admins have no way of knowing what permissions users have on their blog
FEATURE: The role column has been added to the blog-level user listing screen along with the ability to remove users from the blog.
53009: Member Status Icons clipped
FIXED: Member status icons in user tables are no longer clipped.

53456: Blog aggregation not triggered by scheduled post
FIXED: Blog publishing events (used during blog aggregation) were not being triggered by scheduled posts. Well, darn it, they are now.
53985: Template Editor Copy and Paste Errors
FIXED: Many users who did not like the template syntax highlighting that they had to constantly switch to raw text mode when editing template. This preference is now sticky so that users no longer need to always toggle to their preferred template editing mode. It now automatically remembers and selects that last more you used.
54022: Moving from system menu to blog dashboard might be confusing
FIX: The "this page does not exist" message that appears on the dashboard has been killed. It was confusing users and really served very little purpose at this point.
54052: Modal Polishing - Restore
Modal Dialogs all styled consistently
54109: List of plugin actions might be better to be moved to sidebar
FIXED: Plugin actions on the edit entry screen have been moved to the sidebar.

54401: template_param being prior to populating $param
FIXED: Arvind found a bug in which transformer callbacks changed slightly, but in a way such that they were no longer behaving the way they had in the past. This has been fixed.
54666: Search box on templates pages says "search entries"
FIXED: The search box for the edit template area of MT now says "Templates" as opposed to entries.
54509: Page Problem
FIXED: German users reported the following bug during page rebuilding 'Can't use "3" as a method name in bracket group'. This has been fixed.

54734: Create user screen wonked with ie6
FIXED: Create user screen unwonked for IE6 users.
54658: Search and Replace styling
FIXED: Search and replace styling has been updated the best that we can. Expect improvements in future versions of MT.
54493: Using Memcached causes infinite upgrade loop in beta 5 and later
FIXED: Fixed a bug that surfaced in beta 5 that prevented a proper install/upgrade of MT when run under Memcached.
54759: Activity Feed doesn't have some log messages: [mt] #1174:
FIXED: Some activity log messages were blank - probably due to a localization/translation issue. Fixed.
54807: long words aren't clipped on dashboard
FIXED: Super long words that overflowed into other content were not properly clipped making the UI appear a little wonky.
54808: User filter is busted
FIXED: Blog level list users screen had broken title bar on the listing. The bug has been fixed.
54817: MT "bug" in footer is getting cut off on top and bottom using Vox theme

54825: $obj->get_score should fail gracefully when $obj does not have scored yet
FIXED: Object's get_score method failed with Perl error message when the object has not been scored yet. The bug has been fixed.
54812: Vox themes need to be updated to work with StyleCatcher layout options
FIXED: The themes pulled over from Vox have been updated to work with MT's built in layout selection mechanism.
54704: Encountered error from Backup Complete page

FIXED: Some users reported this error when commenting: "Can't call method "text" on unblessed reference at lib/MT/App/Comments.pm line 1914." This has been fixed.
54841: Can't associate primary category with an entry after preview entry
FIXED: One can now associate primary category with an entry after preview entry.
54859: Changing text format to RichText on a blog whose PublishCharset is not UTF-8 turn characters into garbage
FIXED: Some users reported that the rich text editor did not always work when used with different blog encodings or app charsets. This has been fixed.
54861: Re: [mt] #1176: [L10N] Ã£Æ’â€”Ã£Æ’Â©Ã£â€šÂ°Ã£â€šÂ¤Ã£Æ’Â³Ã£â‚¬Å’Template Backup and RefreshÃ£â‚¬ÂÃ£ÂÂ®Ã¦â€”Â¥Ã¦Å“Â¬Ã¨ÂªÅ¾Ã¨Â¨Â³

54891: Reduce size of download: have 6 themes ship with MT
CHANGE: MT4 Beta 7 shipped with over 38 new themes and styles for MT that dramatically increased the size of the download (from 3 to 9 MBs!). We now ship with only 9 themes, but make available all 38 through the style browser. When a remote style is selected and applied to a blog, its stylesheet and all of its images are automatically downloaded and stored on your MT server.
54931: Saving template edit sticks editor setting to source mode
FIXED: Saving template edit changes editor mode to normal textarea when user did not change the syntax highlight mode. The bug has been fixed. Thanks h-oshima for the report.

FIXED (again): List of author archives is now properly output under dynamic publishing.
55042: Restore needs to do the same as blog cloning does to MT::Trackback record

FIXED: Widgets and Widget Sets are now listed in the sidebar of templates you are editing, along with included template modules.
54995: CMS not remembering blog_stats tab preference
FIXED (again): The entry/comments/tags tab is now sticky on the dashboard. Every time we fix this bug, we donate a $1 to charity. Guess how much money we have raised?
54951: Create new top level category screen is borked
FIXED: Updated style of the "Add Top Level Category/Folder" screens/modes to not look quite so... they look better now.
54958: Date format of MTEntryDate under static publishing is different from one under dynamic

55291: Activity log could not be expanded when clicking the triangle icon in IE6

55312: Clicking 'Reset defaults' doesn't reset action bar's settings to default
FIXED: Display Options in edit entry screen did not reset to defaults as expected in the previous versions. The bug has been fixed.
55307: MultiBlog is preventing tag cloud from showing on blog stats widget

FIXED: Published blogs' default CSS (or base-weblog.css) has extra margin around <p> tags to differentiate between <br> tags.
54900: System Information screen not working under FastCGI
FIXED: System information screen now works under FastCGI. A new mt configuration directive was added "MTCheckScript" that points to your mt-check.cgi script. This can be used to point to a .fcgi version of the file, but also if users wish to rename this file for security reasons and keep the system information screen operational within the app.
54497: Feeds.App Lite: Feed that includes Japanese garbles text on the published page.
FIXED: Feeds.App Lite now supports characters outside of US-ASCII set. Japanese build will have Feeds.App Lite in the package.

51222: Manage Files styling
FIXED: The Manage Files styling is now complete.
52047: Upgraded MT install should have Page template added
UPGRADE NOTE: Please make note that users upgrading to MT4 from MT3 will need to add the "Page Archive" template manually to any existing blogs. We do this because it is out strong belief that MT should under no circumstances add or modify any templates in an install. They are the user's and totally sacred.
53108: provide comp for Junk Score on Edit Comment and Edit Trackback
On Edit Comment and Edit TrackBack screens, Spam Score (if exists) appears in a toggle-to-show box.
47960: Blog aggregation
INTEGRATED: Multiblog functionality is now completely integrated. The multiblog user interface will remain accessible through the plugin settings. A future release may incorporate these settings into the main preferences area of the application.
54345: Progress Bar Styling
ENHANCED/UPDATED: We have updated the progress bar styling a bit. One thing you may notice in the Rebuild window is that the progress indicator will actually show how many pages within a group (index/page/date-based archives) remain to be rebuilt and the progress indicator will properly show the percentage complete of a rebuild operation.
54429: Audio, Video asset support
FEATURE: We have added podcasting support for MT. This includes a number of features and new tags. <mt:EntryAssets> tag will iterate over a list of included "assets." This new tag can be filtered by audio, video, files, images. The UI now supports the same filtering. Finally we have made a critical nomenclature change to accommodate these new data types: the term "Files" (e.g. the Manage *Files* menu item/page) is now "Assets." We also added <mt:PageAssets> and <mt:Assets> tags.
54524: Photos widget
FEATURE: Added a "Photos" widget which utilizes new tags to show recently uploaded photos on a blog.
52167: Create Dialog: Entry Notifications (or "Share this entry")
FIXED: We had incompletely implemented the "Share this page/entry" feature in the last release. This cleans that up.
54147: Is there a way to turn syntax high-lighting off?
FIXED: Users provided feedback saying they would like to be able to turn template syntax highlighting off entirely or have the app remember their preferred mode. Now syntax highlighting mode is sticky meaning it will automatically remember the last mode you were using and start up using that mode.
54269: Periodic Task for clearing old mt_session 'US' records
FIXED: Session records maintained by Movable Type sometimes got extremely large because previous versions of Movable Type did not clean up mt_session database table. Cleaning up now occurs once a day, to remove expired user sessions.
54330: StyleCatcher needs to list locally installed styles
