Version: 1.3
Author: Alistair Kearney (
Build Date: 30th July 2009
Requirements: Symphony 2.0.6 or greater

stored in the Symphony config file, and page type is matched against these mappings.


	* You must be running the latest Symphony code from the git Integration branch *

	1. Enable the extension
	2. Add content type mappings to your /manifest/config.php file with 
	   the format 'TYPE' => 'CONTENT-TYPE', E.G.:

			###### CONTENT-TYPE-MAPPINGS ######

	Depending on the Content Type you map to a page type, it may not be necessary to add this
	Content-Disposition header in order to cause the page to download.

	1.2 - Fixed to work properly with Page::addHeaderToPage()
	1.1  - Symphony 2.0.5 compatibility upgrade
		 - Force download option (thanks to ashooner)
