“Over the past couple weeks, we’ve read and listened to user feedback and have carefully considered the criticisms and suggestions that were made.” Six Apart Announces Pricing & Licensing Changes to Movable Type.
The key thing that the last update on this subject didn’t seem to fix? “Unlimited Personal Edition ($99.95): Allows for an unlimited number of authors and weblogs for personal use. This license is new, allowing unlimited authors and weblogs for personal use.” This was the biggest complaint I continued to hear, and as someone that once ran a group weblog, I’m glad to see the change.
The really cool new features are still coming; the latest version of MT 3.0 is a developer’s version. For developers to use to create new things. Not for the average user. If you don’t want to deal with potential bugs, keep on using MT 2.661. I am.
All of this is a great example of Six Apart being willing to take the feedback (even if it wasn’t positive) and allow for things like Trackback on their own site so that everyone could be heard. Mad props to the Six Apart team!
