Due to a bogus V3.20a version of UNP floating around on BBSs, this version
will be called V3.30.

I have basicly given up support for the UNP V3.x serie since I am writing
a complete new version of UNP. So there is no need to send bugreports of
this version. This release is just a result of a lot of requests for
the tinyprog/pktiny stuff.

If you are getting divide errors, try using "unp -l .." or "loadfix unp..".

Changes made from V3.15 to V3.30

- added SCRNCH V1.02
- added TINPROG V3.0, V3.8 and V3.9
- added handling of pktiny-ed files with PKTINY V1.0 and V1.4
- fixed bug causing dieted files on systems with much memory free to
generate a divide error.
- added (another) safety check on PkHeaders, this header could still cause
system crashes 🙁
(BTW. I have recieved copies of propack and ice, thanks!)

Due to some minor errors in releasing V3.13 and V3.14 this version of UNP
is released as V3.15. The changes made from UNP V3.15 to V3.12:

- fixed bug which in certain cases messed up 2 bytes in the resulting file
- added PROTECT! EXE/COM V3.1

Changes made from UNP V3.12 to V3.11

Due to a hard disk crash I lost propack v2.08 and ice V1.00, can anyone
who has one or both of these pleeeaaassseeee send it to me?

Also, I decided to release UNP as freewhere (see doc), please register!
