New version 3.7.3 of WordPress File Upload plugin has just been released.
This version is a minor release that introduces an improvement in filename sanitization. Before a file is uploaded its name is checked for invalid characters and corrected (sanitized). Now the plugin uses native WordPress functions to sanitize the filename. It uses two sanitization modes, a ‘loose’ one that only strips invalid characters and a ‘strict’ one (default) that also converts non-latin characters to latin. Mode is defined by ‘Filename Sanitization Mode’ environment variable.
Furthermore, this release introduces Chinese translation, kindly provided by Yingjun Li.
You can check details in the Release Notes of the plugin’s support page.
