Like everybody, I also have great passion towards open source software. I always think why people write some complex code and put it on the net for free . In my list of open source application this always have some special place.

I still remember that one interesting and thrilling week when I worked on this swfupload app. The project is simple just upgrade the swfupload app from 0.83 to 2.5.0 (Its all bcoz of the release of flash 10 with some security advancement) . We all thought it would be as simple as copy paste. But it was not, it demanded few changes in perl, javascript and html on our existing code. My passion towards the open source just dragged me towards this project. I started and completed it successfully, only bcoz of help from the members of this community.

This swfupload is one of the great tool to be used when your requirements are any of these.

* Upload multiple files at once by ctrl/shift-selecting in dialog
* Javascript callbacks on all events
* Get file information before upload starts
* Style upload elements with XHTML and css
* Display information while files are uploading using HTML
* No page reloads necessary
* Works on all platforms/browsers that has Flash support.
* Degrades gracefully to normal HTML upload form if Flash or javascript is unavailable
* Control filesize before upload starts
* Only display chosen filetypes in dialog
* Queue uploads, remove/add files before starting upload

Finally I thank and their members timely help in completing the project successfully .
