Movable Type is a weblog publishing system developed by the company Six Apart. It was publicly announced on September 3, 2001; version 1.0 was publicly released on October 8, 2001.
The current version is 6.0.4.
Movable Type is proprietary software. From June 2007 to July 2013, Six Apart ran the ''Movable Type Open Source Project'', which offered a version of Movable Type under the GPL.
Movable Type has several notable features, such as the ability to host multiple weblogs and standalone content pages, manage files, user roles, templates, tags, categories, and trackback links.
The application supports static page generation (in which files for each page are updated whenever the content of the site is changed), dynamic page generation (in which pages are composited from the underlying data as the browser requests them), or a combination of the two techniques. Movable Type optionally supports LDAP for user and group management and automatic blog provisioning.
Movable Type is written in Perl, and supports storage of the weblog's content and associated data within MySQL natively. PostgreSQL and SQLite support was available prior to version 5, and can still be used via plug-ins. Movable Type Enterprise also supports the Oracle database and Microsoft SQL Server.
As of 2014, Movable Type is offered in two editions under a proprietary license, ''Pro'' (for small to mid-sized businesses) and ''Enterprise'' (for large businesses, with additional features).〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Download )—lists the various versions of Movable Type and their costs〕
