ZXpand interface firmware 2.1
* New CAT functionality - can now create directories natively:
CAT "+[directory]"

* New SAVE functionality - can now forcibly overwrite files or rename target with a .BAK extension:
SAVE "+[filename]" will rename the target file to filename.BAK unless a backup already exists in which case error 8 occurs as usual.
SAVE ">[filename]" will silently overwrite the target file if it already exists.

* New CONFIG option - 'O'. This sets the default SAVE overwrite behaviour.
CONFIG "O=0" will set the normal default behaviour which is to generate error 8 if the target file exists.
CONFIG "O=1" will set the default behaviour to BAK mode, which will preserve the existing file or generate error 8 if the target backup file already exists.
CONFIG "O=2" will set the default behaviour to overwrite mode, which will silently overwrite the existing target.
CONFIG "O" will show the current option setting, one of "ERR", "BAK" or "OVR".

ZXpand interface firmware 2.2 BETA
* Rename functionality available to programs.

This firmware update is necessary to use the rename feature in ZXpand-Commander. No rename command is available natively as yet. I'm still working on the syntax.

*edit* - removed attachment as full version is now available.

ZXpand interface firmware 2.2
* Small bug relating to auto-overwrite fixed

After some extended testing I'm happy to release the full V2.2 firmware. It is recommended that you update, especially if you plan to use ZXpand-Commander.

Version 2.61 "TROLL"

* back-ported ZXpand+ LOAD "xyz STOP " feature

This is a useful trick to stop programs from auto-running when LOADing them.
