The 'media' field type is now deprecated in favour of the 'file' field type.
While the media field type is deprecated, it's still supported in Media 1.x and legacy support is provided in File entity 2.x. Many Drupal 7 sites will have these fields. So we shouldn't be eliminating support for them yet. Rather, we should simply add support for the 'file' field type and update the field created at install from the deprecated media to the file type.
Focusing on 1.x fixes will help pave the way for 2.x support.
Remove 2.x specific changes from this patch. They can be addressed as followup in #16.. See the issues identified in
User interface changes
Original report by helmo
I came across, where Dave Reid mentions in #1 that the 'Multimedia asset' filed is deprecated. Note sure what his means for the media_gallery module...
Does anyone have more details about this field?
