Subject: UPX 1.01 executable packer
Reply-To: djgpp AT delorie DOT com

Dear audience,

we are pleased to announce UPX 1.01. The Ultimate Packer for
eXecutables is a portable, extensible, high-performance executable
packer for several different executable formats. It achieves an
excellent compression ratio and offers *very* fast decompression.

UPX can pack (and unpack) the following executable formats:
        dos/exe, dos/sys, dos/com, djgpp2/coff, watcom/le,
        win32/pe, rtm32/pe, linux/i386 and tmt/adam

Changes since version 0.94
  * win32/pe: fixed an uncompression problem in DLLs with empty
    fixup sections
  * win32/pe: fixed another rare uncompression problem - a field in the
    PE header was set incorrectly
  * documentation updates
  * watcom/le: do not duplicate the non-resident name table
  * win32/pe: fixed an import handling problem: sometimes too much data
    could be deleted from a file -> the uncompressed file would not work
  * win32/pe: fixed a rare problem in the stub string handling part
  * dos/exe: fixed a typo causing an internal error (introduced in 0.99.1)
  * win32/pe: fixed some object alignments which were causing
    problems when loading compressed DLLs under Windows NT/2000
  * win32/pe: changed default to `--strip-relocs=1'
  * dos/com and dos/sys: fixed a bad decompressor problem
  * linux/i386: the counter for the progress indicator was off by one

This is the first production quality release, and we plan that future
releases will be backward compatible with this version.

Please report all problems or suggestions to the authors. Thanks.

Spread and enjoy,
Laszlo & Markus
