After installing the latest version of Orchard using Web Matrix, I encounter the following problem:

After Installing the "Image Field" module Version: 1.1.3 from the Gallery and checking the enable checkbox after install, the Field Type is not listed as an item in the drop down select list, when trying to add a new field. Also when I now go to view the Module status in the "Features" tab section the following is displayed -

Image Field -The image field.
Depends on: jQuery

Missing: Orchard.Media

Any thoughts on this matter is appreciated.

AS an update to this post:

I downloaded and installed the latest Orchard Source version 1.8 and applied the above steps and can confirm that the Image Field module installed, and I was able to successfully this fields to add to a content type.

I should note though that if I try to add an "image" part to my content type I got a System.NullReference exception -
var mediaPart = ((ContentItem)Model.ContentItem).As<MediaPart>();
