The following features have been added in Version 1.1:>
- EMS Magic will now load itself into UMBs by default, unless the /L switch is specified. This should save
7K conventional memory on most systems with limited free UMBs. Previously LOADHIGH was needed to load EMS Magic into UMBs, which required 64K+ free initially.
- MAX option added to the /RAM switch. Specifying /RAM=MAX will use all available XMS for EMS.
- /BEST switch added. This forces EMS Magic to use the "best fit" memory allocation strategy when loading, rather than the default "last fit". This is needed for some programs that expect the upper end of conventional memory to be available.

Unless a major bug is found, this will likely be the final release. Thanks to everyone who provided feedback.
