Release notes

The 3.8 release of FileField includes several bug fixes and corrects a major problem that prevents files from being selected for uploading in the latest version of Google Chrome. If you have users that use Google Chrome, this is a highly recommended update, as Chrome users will not be able to upload files using the previous versions of FileField.

A matching 3.8 version of ImageField is also available. It is recommended to upgrade FileField and ImageField at the same time.
