Using the HTML5 File API to read the file contents

In the previous blog post we use the new HTML5 Drag and Drop API to drag files from the Windows Explorer into the browser and process them using JavaScript. That worked pretty well, except for Internet Explorer that is, but the File object didn’t give is a lot of details about the file.

This is the 3rd post about what is new with Windows Workflow Foundation in .NET 4.5 as announced at the //build/ conference. See also part 1 about the designer enhancements and part 2 about the other runtime enhancements.   This 3rd post is about one of the biggest missing pieces which is versioning workflows.
