The Blog Herald reports that Six Apart’s Movable Type is now open source:
Licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2, the blogging community then is allowed to freely modify, redistribute, and use Movable Type for anything they want. This is going to be all good for the blogging community with both major blog platforms now openly available to everyone.
One commenter has an interesting take on the matter:
I guess losing ground to wordpress took part in the decision to move into open source?
Which is an opinion that can’t be considered as unfounded.
