enabled gpx, applied changes, waited a moment, refreshed... then tried to upload a gpx file. Not working. Still the message that I am not allowed to upload that kind of file.

This was exactly what we needed. Works also with Gravity Forms file upload fields. What I don't know should the mime types be exactly something official or not? Some help text with that part could be good to be there.

I checked the filetype I needed to upload (svg) and still couldn't upload it. I couldn't see any way to make it work...
