@libreleah Also, it may be good to warn users that a 1.1MiB download expands into 529MiB of ROMs. ;)

@mikegerwitz

oh, yeah. the roms are duplicated for different keymaps that are supported. i use maximum compression settings when doing releases

most of that expanded size is actually 0xFF when you look at the rom in a hex editor. only about 1MiB of space is used in flash! the rest is padding

since all the roms are very similar, it compresses down into a neat little 1.1MiB tar archive ;)
