ClouSE version 1.0b.1.2 and WordPress on S3 / Yapixx refresh is released

  • Weblob content type improvement

Now the content type for Weblobs is set based on their name.  Previously, the content type for all Weblobs was set to application/octet-stream, which could lead to undesirable Web Browser behavior when the Weblob was downloaded from Amazon S3 directly.  For example, an image file could be downloaded to disk instead of showing in the browser.

The detailed list of changes in ClouSE 1.0b.1.2 is available here.
