Upload
  • Feature: A new, shiny uploader based on BlueImp's jQuery File Uploader has replaced the old uploader.
    This uploader has advanced features such as measuring network speed, ETAs and of course, progress bars.
    Fully AJAX'd and powered by jQuery UI, this uploader also lets you manage your existing files, deleting them with a single click.
    You are also able to abort a currently in-progress upload without reloading the whole page.
    Any existing themes made for jQuery UI will also work to style this uploader - more themes will be selectable in the future.
