wake me when it's over

If you just want the details and features and good stuff, there’s a free beta version to play with

but wait!

Looking for the Movable Type 4 beta? We're in the process of updating our website; check back with us in an hour. Thanks!

Perhaps the announcement could've waited "an hour" (or more, as it's turned out)? I'm not unhappy with Movable Type - I run wordpress over there, mostly as a learning experience, but it doesn't seem compellingly better - certainly not for a shared instance that I manage for others. But Six Apart haven't exactly won any friends lately, and "releasing" a beta that you can't actually download doesn't really help...

Turns out there was DNS propogation issues... I was downloading it merrily as my friends were calling foul. Have you still not gotten it?

Yeah, I have it now. I just figured the announcement could've waited a few hours until it was all working - it's not like a few hours would've made that much of a difference, but it certainly looks better...
