Question » Why does this feel like déjà vu all over again?
Answer » Because it is.
Movable Type 5.0 was released January, 2010. Five years ago. I last upgraded my copy in mid-2011.
» Movable Type Pro LIcense vs Movable Type Open Source
I have a nice story for you. You see, there were two different licenses associated with Movable Type » Pro and Open Source.
Pro costs money and you get support. Open Source free but no support.
But if you were a single, non-business user, you could use Pro for free. Which I did. For years. Always upgrading no problem.
Anyway, I had put off upgrading since mid 2011. Because I got busy with other stuff, you know.
Say what? What to do?
I mean you can't be running 4-year old technology on the web.
So I upgraded my Pro install (5.12, summer 2011) with MT OpenSource (5.2.12, feb 2015)
