Hello all,

I am playing with the latest SVN of Alfresco Community (current build 19471).

When I try to add content using the web interface, it seems to work, saying that the content has been uploaded. However, upon pressing "OK" to save the content I receive the following error:
Failed to create content due to error: str parameter is mandatory 
The debug output gives the following warning:
ERROR [ui.common.Utils] Failed to create content due to error: str parameter is mandatory
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: str parameter is mandatory

WARN  [bean.content.BaseContentWizard] Could not find 'content-types' configuration element

Uploading via FTP or CIFS works as expected.

Any idea how to fix this, or do I just have to wait for the final release?
