Re: esxDOS v0.8.9 Changelog

Nice. Thanks.

The correction of an auto-LOAD issue allow us to use:

- last version of the .LAUNCHER by ub880d
which now works not only with TAPs, but also with BASIC files

- .BASLOAD (aka .L) by me
time-saving typing of short commands to run basic loaders
   .L name
instead of
   LOAD*"name.BAS"
