I'm using 2.7 beta 2, for some reason the drop down doesn't list it.
I think it would be quite useful to be able to upload items of any sort from the dashboard page and create a new post with the item in, via a checkbox? all this inside one of the little drag and drop boxes. Of course, this would be hidable from the screen options drop down.
I just think that it would speed up quick posts of photos, files etc.
