Last updated 25 May 2012.
- Add a few remaining major features to the File entity module such as a file access API, and metadata API.
- Cleanup and add test coverage to File entity to prepare it for merging into core.
- Improve the UI for managing files, file types, and file displays.
- Merge the File entity module into core's existing File module. This will provide Drupal core with the following features:
- Allow fields to be added to file entities
- A UI for adding, viewing, editing, and deleting file entities individually (e.g. pages for file/%file, file/%file/edit, file/%file/delete, file/add, etc.).
- A file access and metadata API that can be easily extended by other modules.
