Movable Type 4.2

While I've been running the Beta version of Movable Type as the back end for this blog for months now, with the release of the official release version last week, I've upgraded and since then notice that quite regularly the perl processes will spike the CPU to 70-80% when doing MT related functions (such as posting, rebuilding, etc), but I suppose a momentary spike during rebuilds is slightly better than running that constantly. Total rebuilds are much faster than before, and search results are quite quick. However, the high CPU usage for rebuilds paired with the time (an hour and 9 minutes for my blog initially, but successive rebuilds only take about 5-6 minutes) probably means that those on hosted servers will like earn the ire of their sysadmin for them sapping out the capacity of their systems.
