Movable Type Updates
From the beginning, we've pledged our support for Atom (then called Echo), and we've now added support for Atom syndication feeds to both of our products.
As of December 16, TypePad sites support version 0.3 of the Atom syndication feed format, along with <link> tags for autodiscovery.
And as of today, December 22, Movable Type supports version 0.3 of the feed format, also with autodiscovery.
What excites us most about the new format, though, are the possibilities of the common Atom API. We plan to add API support to Movable Type 3.0, and we'll be announcing more about our Atom API implementation for TypePad in a couple of weeks.
As part of their coverage of the Howard Dean campaign, the latest issue of Baseline magazine includes a profile of Six Apart (and Mena and myself). It's a fairly broad piece on the company, including how it started with the development of Movable Type, and how we got to where we are today. We're happy that the article will help to introduce Movable Type and TypePad to the IT sector and honored to be featured.
One place where the article does disappoint, though, is in its suggestion that I (Ben) am the sole person responsible for developing Movable Type, which is not correct.
