We are working hard over new Image Uploader 6.0 release. In the next version we have focused on stability, end-user and developer usability, as well as on adding some new features to be in trend of all modern technologies and approaches like cloud computing and Web 2.0.
Not taking into consideration the major improvements, version 6.0 will be backward compatible with all 2.x-5.x versions. We plan to release new version in the beginning of 2009, however, the final ETA is not defined yet.
Here is the general concept of version 6.0 architecture. We will post the detailed descriptions of all the new features and improvements later.
The main improvement on server side is adding upload support not only for common web server but and for cloud storages. Most probably we will also provide samples of using Image Uploader with common cloud computing services like Google App Engine.
In order to simplify user development and provide lower learning curve for ASP.NET and PHP developer, we plan to release ASP.NET Control and PHP Library. In this case, users can use familiar development approaches and quickly implement common tasks.
