I would like to limit the global upload-limit for some filetypes.

So I found the following method, that was used in older ss-versions (and is still mentioned in the api):

File::setMaxFileSize(1024*1024*10, 1024*1024*10, 'jpg'); 

But as far as I can see in 2.3.x and 2.4.0alpha it isn't in core anymore.

Is there a global replacement for it?

Hmm you can set AssetAdmin::$allowed_max_file_size for the cms, and then you can set setAllowedMaxFileSize on upload fields, but I can' find global setting. And I think there is none, see , it says:

API CHANGE Removed deprecated File->setMaxFileSize(), use Upload class
