We started new year with a new feature - an ability to upload entire folders with HTML5 uploader. What is important to know if this feature is critical for you?
We were going to release this update right after the Christmas, although as it always happens, we have encountered few unexpected issues. So we worked during the New Year holidays and yesterday we have rolled out Upload Suite 8.1.15.
The main feature of this release is a folder upload support in HTML5 uploader and as a side effect of this feature, now it loads a large list of files much faster than earlier.
Unfortunately, HTML5 technology is not as powerful as Java or ActiveX and there are few serious limitations:
That's why it makes sense to consider combining both Java and HTML5 uploaders together: load HTML5 uploader in Chrome and Java in other browsers. The documentation articles about the folder uploading feature contains a code example how to do it:
The next feature we will transfer from Java to HTML5 uploader is image watermarking. We expect it will be available in few weeks from now. Although Google gave us a little break and migrating to HTML5 became less urgent (until April 2015), we will do the best to add as many features to HTML5 uploader before the "D-Day" as possible.
