From Alpha to Beta

Plumbing MTAmazon 3.0 with an automated installation and upgrade process was easy. So without further ado, here is the official MTAmazon 3.0 Beta. With the release of this beta my support for the 1.3.3 version will dwindle in favor of the more up-to-date software. I have learned a lot from not only maintaining previous MTAmazon versions but also from trying to build on top of MTAmazon as a plugin developer. I have done my best to incorporate those learnings into this latest version of the software in an attempt to make MTAmazon easier to use and install, more communicative in the event of an error, more flexible and configurable, and of course, easier to incorporate into and reuse in other plugins.

And with MTAmazon 3.0, a long overdue release, I believe I have achieved that. But the proof is in the pudding. I need help testing the new version. And don’t worry — MTAmazon 3.0 can live quite peacefully right along side other versions of MTAmazon with absolutely no conflicts, so there is no need to worry that this Beta software will in anyway interfere with your existing blogs pre-existing integration with Amazon Web Services.

But there is also another reason why this software upgrade is important. Amazon no longer supports Developer Tokens and Subscriber Ids. So if you were a new Amazon Web Services user/developer, then that means you would have been unable to use previous versions of MTAmazon and Media Manager. snif

So don’t delay Movable Type users, download MTAmazon 3.0 (available in Windows and Unix formats) and help me test it now!

I had my first day today working for the Criminal Division of the Wyoming Attorney General's Office. It was interesting. I did a little bit of minor work on a habeas case and started working on an appeal. And by "working on" I mean I read the record. I... Read More

I've finally got around to playing with MTAmazon and media manager again.... how does one get the thing to point at amazon.co.uk, please? I really can't find this info anywhere! It's frustrating as I think I had this done once in the past!

Ahhh.... it's on the plugin page for the blog settings.

Doh!

Okay, time to play with that a bit and then look at media manager.
