Activates a file version upload.

Until further backend API improvements are implemented, this component is meant to be used to enrich the features and decrease the restrictions currently applied to node version uploading.

Basic usage

This component extends the Upload Button component. The properties and events are the same except for the node property that specifies the node to be versioned (this is a required input parameter). However, some properties don't make sense when applied to the Upload Version Button component so they are simply ignored.
