Version 2.22 of MT is out and I’ve already updated our site here with it. The two big new features it are support for using a mySQL database instead of the Berkeley flat-file DB and a new way to track who’s commenting on your blog entries on their own blogs called Track Back. The folks over at hopelessromantics have set up a testing post to show folks how it works, and this posting is a test of that feature. If I’ve set everything up properly my site should ping the related article at their site. Not sure what it all means in the end, but I get a sense it has the potential to make for some interesting cross-blog dialogs pop up.
For those of you who are running your own blogs with MT and occasionally bitch about something I wrote here at your own site, well, I’ve set up the feature here as well. Now, let’s see if it works.
