When uploading files having the same to a folder in Alfresco, the platform renames that new uploaded file (including "-1" and so on counters) and creates a new file.
1: Folder > Test.pdf
2: Upload Test.pdf to Folder
3: Folder > Test.pdf, Test-1.pdf
4: Upload Test.pdf to Folder
5: Folder > Test.pdf, Test-1.pdf, Test-2.pdf

This addon provides a behaviour to auto-versioning the existing file with the content of the new one.
1: Folder > Test.pdf
2: Upload Test.pdf to Folder
3: Folder > Test.pdf [1.1]
4: Upload Test.pdf to Folder
5: Folder > Test.pdf [1.2]
