This looks like it will be the last release based on Jay’s comments. His reasoning is that Movable Type 3.0 will have sufficient methods to manage comment spam so the utility of MT-Blacklist will fade, along with the donations.
MT 3.0 is in beta starting this week (sign-up to be a beta tester here) so the release should be forthcoming. I filled out the form to be a beta tester to get a sneak peak, but I haven’t heard anything yet. It’s possible I’ll be running 3.0 as long as the upgrade isn’t too strenuous.
In other news, the Pepys Project (a weblog directory categorized by location) which used to be at pepys.akacooties.com has been rewritten and moved to a new domain: www.pepysproject.org. Mike has asked everyone to resubmit their sites so he can get rid of the cruft in the old one.
To submit your site go to the appropriate geographic location, then click on “Suggest New Link” on the left sidebar. It’s quite new still, so you might be one of the first representatives of your state.
