I've been working with the free version of XUpload and I must say it's quite amazing. Good work guys (and girls)!
With a general upload form, sending the information to a PHP page, all of the form information, including the uploaded file(s), are passed to the $_FILES superglobal variable.
Using XUpload, I believe it's the cgi that handles the upload and the data is passed to the $_POST superglobal variable in PHP.
Is it possible to keep the progress bar but let PHP handle the file uploading so that I can continue to use my original upload script which is based off the $_FILES variable?
I'm wondering because I've got a few hundred lines of code for my uploader class that all revolve around the $_FILES variable.
The is really the only thing holding me back from ordering the pro version. If I know it can be done relatively easily, the better progress bar alone is worth the investment

I spent a few hours at work trying to figure this out and here is something I came across. It's an extension for PHP 5.2.x that allows PHP to send data about a files that is being uploaded.

I'll begin building from this and let you know what kind of PHP progress I can make. Possibly a future idea for XUpload to satisfy us PHP only guys/girls (only meaning no cgi/perl).
