MovableType 4.3.4 released

A new version of MovableType has been released. Version 4.3.4 includes a number of bug fixes. A full breakdown of the changes in this release can be found in the release notes.

Here is a brief summary of the changes:

  • Reimplemented the malicious image detection capabilities that were added to Movable Type 4.33 to protect asset management functions more consistently.

  • Fixed a typographical error in the lib/MT/Summary/ Perl module in Movable Type 4.33 that resulted in "subroutine redefined" errors being reported in some circumstances.
  • Fixed a problem with the internal search facility within the Movable Type 4 CMS that prevented more than 125 results matching the search criteria to be displayed.
  • Fixed a problem with the internal search facility within the Movable Type 4 CMS that caused all "Regex Match" searches to return no matches.
  • Fixed a problem in Movable Type 4.33 where searching for entries by date ranges returned incorrect results. This problem was most noticeable to users of the Blog Stats Dashboard Widget. It often displayed no activity for entries or comments regardless of actual activity.
