Version 2.0.2

Released: February 15, 2016

Previously the update checkbox was ignored during the metadata step of the document upload wizard with the wizard always creating a metadata entry for the new document even if the entry was left blank. The checkbox now controls whether or not the wizard will store try to create the metadata entry.
