Hi! Just wrapping up the Beta release of the Movable Type API ActiveX Component. I'll be releasing examples all day tomorrow. Here are a few already:

Get Recent Posts
Get Category List
Get Post Categories
Assign Additional Post Category
Remove Category from Post
Fetch Trackback Information

Information about downloading the ActiveX is on each example page.
The Movable Type API provides an interface for the MT XML-RPC calls (mt.getPostCategories, mt.setPostCategories, mt.getCategoryList, mt.GetRecentPostTitles, mt.getTrackbackPings, mt.publishPost, etc.)

The same API will be available in the Tortuga Movable Type .NET Class Library within a week. There is also a WordPress ActiveX Component that provides functionality for the WordPress Admin web pages that is not accessible from any XML-RPC. For example, one cannot create new categories via an external non-web app, but the WordPress ActiveX (and .NET) components will allow you to do something like this.

Questions can be sent to Matt Fausey

By the way, I forgot to mention. All the blogging components support HTTP proxy and SSL (Blogger 1.0, Blogger 2.0, MetaWeblog, Movable Type, Technorati, Yahoo! Site Explorer, yada yada yada...). Not sure if SSL is used yet, but if it were, the support is already there. Anyway, it would be nice to see XML-RPC over SSL because right now the logins/passwords are passed in plain-text.
