Movable Type 3.0D

I just upgraded my weblog to Movable Type 3.0 Developer Edition, also known as Movable Type Free.

Limitations of the license:

  • No support from Six Apart
  • No access to paid installation service
  • No access to fee-based services
  • No promotion of your weblogs through the Recently Updated list
  • No commercial usage
  • No more than one author and three weblogs

Sounds okay to me! Paid licenses start at $70 and includes “a guaranteed path to future versions.” If Movable Type does change, at least all the entries are on my own server, in MySQL, and I can move to a separate publishing system. I donated money to Movable Type when I first created my Movable Type weblog, and there is still an area for a ping key in my preferences.
