I have uploaded version 1.24-1 of the "Ultimate Packager for eXecutables".

UPX is a free, portable, extendable, high-performance executable packer
for several different executable formats. It achieves an excellent
compression ratio and offers very fast decompression. Your executables
suffer no memory overhead or other drawbacks.
UPX is copyrighted software distributed under the terms of the GNU
General Public License, with special exceptions granting the free usage
for commercial programs as stated in the UPX License Agreement.
UPX uses the NRV compression library for compression services. A
compatible but somewhat less efficient OpenSource implementation is
available through the UCL compression library.
UPX aims to be Commercial Quality Freeware.
This version uses the UCL library.

   * atari/tos: fixed an unpacking problem where a buffer was too

   * documentation: added some quick tips how to achieve the best
