AjaxFileUpload Control Improvements - This release includes a greatly improved AjaxFileUpload control which supports:
  • Large Files - The AjaxFileUpload control now supports uploading very large files (greater than 1 gigabyte).
  • File Upload Progress - The AjaxFileUpload control has been improved to display file upload progress using two different techniques. For browsers which fully support the HTML5 standard, the AjaxFileUpload displays progress using client-side progress events. For browsers which do not fully support the HTML5 standard, the AjaxFileUpload displays upload progress by polling the server.

I found several problems when using the ajaxupload with the Microsoft IE but in the other hand it works fine with Chrome and Firefox. Also the new htmleditorextender is not developer friendly to set and read content when using javascript. Nevertheless, it's a fair release.

when will you fix the issue of the tabcontainer within the update panel in IE8 that cause an unhandled exception due to a null value; I recall that a guy actually modified the source code with one extra line; is now more than one year and few releases that this issue has not been fixed. Due to Company policy that force the use of IE8, I cannot upgrade the toolkit since November 2011 .

Works great for Safari, Chrome and FireFox. However, the software is very buggy using Microsoft IE versions. It only seems to work for IE if you have the aspx files located in an IIS web server root folder. For example, if I have a folder called foo, and place all the aspx files there, including App_Code, bin, etc, the software consistently throws javascript exceptions for IE only.
