I’ve rewritten the original Gallery Link plugin to be compatible with Movable Type 4 and with Gallery 2 (Sorry, Gallery 1 users, my plugin is not compatible. The old one should still work for you.)

Ok, Movable Type is moving a lot quicker now. This is the second upgrade in a month. I don’t think there are any obvious changes though. Hopefully everything still works great.
