I have uploaded version 1.21-1 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.

Changes in 1.21 (01 Jun 2002)

    * New option "--crp-ms=" for slightly better compression at the cost
      of higher memory requirements during compression.
      Try "upx --best --crp-ms=100000". See the docs for more info.
    * portability fixes
    * compile fixes for g++ 3.0 and g++ 3.1

I updated the README to include some help to use as a service and and
the --no-detach command line option to use as a service.
