Movable Type 2.2 With MySQL and TrackBack27 Jun 2002
Movable Type 2.2 released. PapaScott has been running the beta version with the MySQL backend for the past two weeks. Nice to have the data so accessable. But the real mind bomb, as Dave would say, is the TrackBack feature, which enables entries in your blog to be pinged by other blogs linking to it, and thus create a list of those links your entry. It will be like an Internet-wide comments feature, once people grok it and other blogging systems implement it as well.
It would be really nice if MT could ping both weblogs.com and blo.gs by default. But it should be easy enough to add a couple of lines to get that to work.
28 Jun: Let's see if trackback is working for the daily archive.
