Movable Type 3.0 Developer Edition
Funny that I should mention :MT: 3.0 earlier today, because the 3.0 Developer Edition just released today.  From what I can gather, “Developer Edition” is really essentially another, more refined, public beta.  Maybe. Anyway, the big news is the new licensing scheme to go along …
