Aurigma Image Uploader 6.0.10 Dual - Released May 21, 2009

Started planning of new Image Uploader version we decided to focus on three goals: support of images of big size, usage simplicity, and wide support of browsers.

The first goal - support of big images - is the solution for well-known problem when Image Uploader was unable to create thumbnails for big images and sent icons instead. We realized that modern cameras increase megapixels from year to year and the problem became serious. Our development team had to reimplement image processing modules of both ActiveX and Java versions and as a result we have support of large images and have increased the quality of thumbnails.

The second goal - make Image Uploader easier to embed to customers' solutions - required to survey what platforms were used by our customers. We found out that two of them - ASP.NET and PHP - form absolute majority. We implemented special solutions for each platform (Image Uploader ASP.NET control and Image Uploader PHP library) wrapping Image Uploader and allowing to use it in a straight forward way on a platform.

The third goal is support of modern browsers. In recent times several new browsers were released - Chrome and Internet Explorer 8. We made some efforts to test Image Uploader on these new ones and adapt the control to them. As a result Image Uploader supports these two browsers and Opera 9 additionally.

Here is the overall list of new features and improvements in Image Uploader 6.

While working on version 5.5 of Image Uploader Dual, we were focusing on two major objectives: stability and performance. This version almost does not include new functionality, nevertheless we did huge work. Some modules of the product have been refactored, some of them have been written from scratch.
