This project is a great piece of work which I can see us getting a lot of value out of.

I've proposed a couple of changes to the README which you may see as NOOB overkill but if not I hope they are of value you to you.

As I say, great stuff and thanks to everyone who has contributed to this project.

Like the other changes, but I'm not sure this line adds clarity.

If you're trying to say that it's in bytes, I'd add that into the phrasing, or into the note down below - whatever you think works best!

Following feedback on pull request from Steven Skoczen.
@worldofchris worldofchris Added note on using with Fine Uploader
Fine Uploader allows you to specify Custom Headers which means you can
use it out of the box with django-ajax-uploader by passing in the
X-CSRFToken as a custom header.

I'm now using django-ajax-uploader with Fine Uploader, as valum's file-uploader is now called, instead of the version bundled with django-ajax-uploader. To use this you need to specify a Custom Header when you configure the file uploader instead of using the django-ajax-uploader specific params.

The advantage of this is you can use Fine Uploader out of the box and so take advantage of new features as they are added to it, for example the progress bar.

I have proposed a comment to add to the explaining how to use django-ajax-uploader with Fine Uploader.

In fact, given Fine Uploader now allows you to specify Custom Headers is it worth now removing the bundled version of valum's uploader from django-ajax-uploader?

Hey Chris,

Very interesting, and thanks for the pull request - I'll check out Fine Uploader and this pull shortly!

In better late than never news, finally getting this in. I just added this + credit to you in the readme, instead of dealing with the merge conflicts - will go out as 0.3.5 this afternoon.

Thanks for the improvements!
