As Michelle, Eli, and I went through our final round of testing and
fixes for Uploader before release, we made a couple of decisions that
involved some final commits. In each case, we removed functionality
that isn't quite ready for prime time; no features were added. Here's
a quick summary:
1. We exiled the Uploader springboard to a branch and removed it from
trunk for release. It's a good example of how you can customize the
Uploader's markup, but there are a few lingering bugs that cause it to
be more confusing than helpful as an example. We'll come back to this
for the next release.
2. We removed the Cancel button from the Uploader template. There are
a couple of minor quirks with it that could be confusing to
implementors, so we've removed it for this release. Of course
implementors can still easily add their own cancel button, hook it up
to our events, and style it consistently if they want.
3. We couldn't reliably fix the bug that causes files to be
unremovable once an upload has started. We added a workaround that
ensures the file remove buttons stay grayed out.
We are now officially frozen!
