TIPPINST – Finally upgraded from 2.6 to 3.1 of movable type this was mainly prompted by the fact that mt-blacklist for 3.1 contains alot of powerful new features. The upgrade process was painless for both MT and MT-Blacklist. Blacklist now acts as a plugin inside movable type. A nice feature about the new version of blacklist is that it automatically downloads updates from the web. Trouble shooting why the download didn’t work at first revealed why my pings weren’t functioning.
