MovableType Upgrade

I have just upgraded to MovableType version 4. Please report any problems you experience. This should allow me to fix ongoing difficulties with comments and trackbacks. In particular, I should be able to turn off all of my spam filtering stuff and rely on CAPTCHA. I haven't played with the settings yet, so if nothing has broken it will be pretty much the same as before, but a number of improvements will hopefully be coming in the near future.

Update (3:05 PM): I am aware that comments are currently not working. All commenters receive a message that says the comment has been held for moderation, but the comment text actually just disappears irretrievably. Go figure. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope to get the problem fixed some time tomorrow.

Update (8:30 PM): The comment issue is fixed, at least temporarily, but there may be spam issues in the near future, as I am using only the default spam protection and haven't set up CAPTCHA yet.

Update (12/23/08, 10:44 AM): CAPTCHA seems to be up and working now. The only thing that isn't working seems to be the 'Remember personal info' button. I hope to get this working some time in the near future.
