The link in the 'file' module ends with "versions/download/6?attachment_id=45
It would be great to have the actual filename in the URL. My main concern is with gentoo ebuilds, which require the filename to be in the URL. But also when i need to point the user to the direct URL (not the web page with the url).
I dont know how hard this would be, i'm not much in web development.

Appends the filename to the attachment url so that clients that ignore content-disposition http header get the real filename (#1649).

I know it's been some time since this issue was closed but we just migrated from redmine 0.7 to 1.0. Now this feature messed up all the links in the wiki to uploaded files.
When this feature was implemented was there also a script created that changes the old style links to the new style (e.g. in wiki pages)? Or do we have to change the links manually?
