I am referring to blogged files, just types other than images... our
course manager posts course status reports with attached PDF files,
for instance.

So I guess I am asking: is the old upload feature going completely
away and, if so, will there still be a capability to upload other than
web images and link to them in posts? If not, then that is a loss of
features that kills WP for me (but I'm imagining it isn't so)...

I'm guessing the current Upload options have no effect on the
uploading in the post-composition window.
