MT4 is believed to target business bloggers and further expand its market share. Currently Six Apart is already having some enterprise customers such as Intel Corp., Oracle Corp., Boeing, The Washington Post and New York University.
Movable Type 4 has been rearchitected to simplify companies’ management and deployment of corporate blogs and the creation of online communities, Six Apart officials said.
There are more than 50 new features in MT4 compared to the older version. Some of the new features include an installation and upgrade wizard, more efficient template management tools, built-in asset, photo and file management, and completely redesigned user interface.
One more exciting fact from this news is that Six Apart also expressed its intention to release an open source version of Movable Type in third quarter 2007 for companies and developers interested in extending the functionality of the platform.
Now I can see Wordpress could be having a stiff competition from this release of Movable Type 4. Anyway, healthy competition is always beneficial to the end users, isn’t it?
