Users wishing to obtain the absolutely most recent code of MTOS can check code out directly from the source code repository. To do so requires that you have a git client installed on your machine.
You can check out the latest from the github repository:
% git clone http://github.com/movabletype/movabletype.git
Once you have cloned the source code, you will need to run the following command to process the build and ready it for the web:
% cd movabletype % make me
Note: it is our goal to remove the need for this last step, but for the time being it is required in order to set the default language of the checked out files.
GitHub is the most popular Git hosting, and it also provides social networking functions such as feeds, followers and the network graph to display how the team works on the repository. We believe that this transition will help our community a lot. The development process will be more transparent, easier to try the bleeding edge version of the code, and of course, you can fork your own projects !
