The beta period for Movable Type 4.2 has concluded. This page remains for archival purposes.
The primary objective of Movable Type 4.2 is raw performance. While the release introduces a number of new performance related features like server side includes, publishing profiles and template module caching, a great deal of effort has been expended upon making things faster, period -- no changes to your templates required.
Results may vary so the community's input is essential in making this release a success.
For those users looking for something a little more exciting than "performance enhancements:" don't worry, we have stuff for you too. Check out what's new, we think you will like what you see.
Downloads for this beta are no longer available. Please use the most recent stable release of Movable Type.
