Thanks for great framework.

In HTTP there are two ways to POST data: application/x-www-form-urlencoded and multipart/form-data.

We've started using your framework extensively in our applications and we're creating RESTful APIs with it.
We have come to one critical requirement to update user profile picture. For that matter, according to make it RESTful API, we need to use PUT method with multipart/form-data which is not working with latest version of Slim Framework.

Is it really possible to upload files with PUT method in PHP? Or are we going in wrong direction?

FYI, we're using Postman - Chrome extension to test our RESTful API.
