Good question. For the 0.6 beta, we'll release the new Uploader 2  
without support for Flash 10. I want to get the new architecture and  
design out there for people to try out early and share their feedback.

There are two approaches I've seen for adding Flash 10 support: 1)  
making the upload button a real Flash object, and 2) overlaying a  
transparent Flash object on top of the DHTML. I prefer the former  

I've got an early version of Google Gears support working as well. For  
the 0.6 final release, we'll provide a choice of upload managers, and  
the ability to fall back to alternatives as needed.

Since you mentioned it, how are your Flash chops? Would you like to  
take a stab at getting Flash 10 support working in the next few  
weeks? :)
