We are pleased to inform you that Movable Type 6.1.1 has been shipped.
In Movable Type 6.1.1, we have not only resolved many cases submitted by our engineers as well as many of our valued community members, but also improving the Content Sync feature.
Improved feature: Content Sync (Movable Type Advanced)
The content sync feature is now improved with user feedback. This change improves the stability and speed of processing and improves convenience.
To sync the difference between the previous version
In the previous version, Movable Type had been working to completely synchronize both the source and destination directories, so the processing time and the number of processed files increased and also extended proportionally. In addition, if you have to work with other systems in the destination server, unintended deletion of files may occur.
In the new version, it was changed to copy only the files and directories that have been added, updated and deleted from the previous processing result. By this change, processing speed and stability has been greatly improved. (First time only, all of the files may take some time to sync to the target.)
To be able to set more than one schedule
If you want to make multiple synchronization schedules, now you can create or replicate existing settings without the effort of having to enter the information of the delivery destination every time.
Please review the Movable Type release notes to see everything that was added and improved since the version you are currently using. Also review the known issues sections in case there are items of which you should be aware before upgrading.
If you have an existing Movable Type 6 license, you can download the latest Movable Type from our download portal using your Six Apart ID.
