Breaking change notice

Files uploaded to Web/RESTApps are no longer exposed as Instead, files on the request are exposed as the new node type sv:temporaryFile. Please be aware that apps using file uploads need to be modified and treat uploaded files as sv:temporaryFile-nodes.

This little tutorial might also be useful on how to handle file uploads in a WebApp.
