A new look

Notice the new look for my blog? I just upgraded to Movable Type 3.2, and then refreshed my templates with the new default in this release. I don't know that it's any better looking than the old one, but it's certainly newer...

If you notice anything working worse here than it did before, or anything that seems out of order, please let me know by adding a comment to this entry. So far as I've been able to tell so far, the upgrade went pretty much without a hitch. I had made some changes to some of MT's internal templates, to work around a problem with their auto-reload mechanism on the weblog-rebuilding pages, and the problem is still there, so I had to copy in my changes from MT 3.11. I also had to restore just one of my weblog settings (show the last five entries on the main page, regardless of how old they are), which was a bit surprising, since that should have been covered by the database upgrade. Other than that, it was a really easy upgrade.

If you're using an older version of Movable Type on your blog, I recommend upgrading to 3.2. It's easy, and there are a remarkable number of useful new features. (For me, the most important of those is integrated comment- and TrackBack-spam controls.)
