    Hi there

    Thanks for a great addon!
    I'm wondering what the future plans are regarding supporting different Umbraco versions.

    How long will you maintain the uploader for Umbraco 4.7 (and up) when Umbraco 5 is released? and for how long will you maintain the uploader for 4.7 when Adobe comes with other security updates that makes the uploader stop working?

    I know it's quite a difficult question to answer, but I guess that you have a better idea than me...  ;o)

     

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Ivan,

    Desktop Media Uploader is now part of the Umbraco core, and was released with v4.7.  I'm guessing that there wont be any further developments to the standalone package (unless any serious bug fixes are submitted to Matt?)

    Not sure what Matt's plans are for v5 ... hoping that it will be shipped with the core product too.

    Cheers, Lee.

    Hi Ivan,

    As Lee said, as of 4.7, DMU comes shipped with Umbraco. I've also made several minor updates to the standalone since then to bring the 2 inline. I will continue to support both implementations, making maintenance fixes as and when any issues should arrise, though after Umbraco v5 is released, I won't be intoducing any moer features into the 4.x versions (that said, there have been very few feature additions since it's release, it just works).

    There will definatley be a v5 DMU in the future, however due to the fact how Media works in v5 isn't yet finalised, there hasn't been any progress made on this yet.

    I hope this mitigates your concerns.

    Cheers

    Matt

    Not sure if this topic is the best place for feature requests, but when uploading files I would to choose the media type. I'm using with different image media types (each media type has different croppings) and currently it's always uploaded as the default image media type. I'm thinking about a dropdownlist with allowed media types (based on the structure of the mediatype/folder you selected). When uploading it checks for the normal properties (like width and height) and save those if they're available. This way if you upload a file you can use custom mediatypes :). Good idea?

    Hi Jeroen,

    You'd be best off starting a topic of your own. However, as a quick solution, currently with DMU, you can create your own media factories which tells DMU how to handle files of specific types. OTB it currently supports Images / Files (as per default Umbraco install) To support different file types, or handle the default file types differently, just create a custom media factory. If you need help on doing this, just start another thread and I'll post details there.

    Cheers

    Matt
