Just want to say that I liked the WP uploader because it took images and automatically made thumbnails for me, and then my code would automatically use those in some cases in my custom themes. So, if you do make a rewrite in 1.7.6, please make it automatically create those same thumbnails when images are uploaded — like make it a setting I can select. Pretty please?
Just a little thing: Could you please change your download link from PODS.ZIP to include the version number, eg: PODS.175.ZIP? As there’s no changelog available on the site, it’s impossible to know what version is being downloaded.
