SWFUpload (Maintained for Security Fixes)
This is a fork of the long-abandoned SWFUpload project, maintained by WordPress and others to ensure that a secure version of SWFUpload exists.
We strongly suggest you do not use SWFUpload. But if you must, use this fork.
WordPress is maintaining a secure version of SWFUpload for use by WordPress plugins that have yet to be updated to use Plupload, our upload library of choice. Plupload is was written and is actively maintained by Moxiecode, the developers of TinyMCE.
We do not condone the use of abandonware. We only wish to make the web a better place by ensuring that developers have access to a secure version of SWFUpload, when the only alternative may be to use insecure code.

Submitting Bug Fixes and New Features
This fork of SWFUpload is maintained for security features only. Features will not be accepted. (We'll again recommend Plupload.)
Discrete bug fixes could be considered on a case-by-case basis through a pull request. We do not wish to condone any time spent on SWFUpload, as we find that to be time wasted. But, if you have a desire to help maintain SWFUpload, contact [email protected].
