We have the intention of removing the Java Upload from JoomGallery with version 4.0 of JoomGallery.
While JoomGallery 4.0 won't be released before Joomla! 4.0 is published (which doesn't even have a release date yet) we want to inform everybody about this plan already now.
If you have concerns about this please voice your opinion here or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, the Java upload will be removed with version 4.0.
Main reasons for removing the Java upload:
I'm in favor of this. Fineuploader certainly is a great replacement of the Java uploader. Back in the day when there was nothing else it was considered pretty good. But now that Fineuploader takes it's place and has far less issues and is more dynamic, having a lighter Joomgallery is a good idea.
Yup Seems like a good idea
Since the Java Browser plugin has been discontinued, there is even more reason to simply drop this.
