> From the README
> o memoir v3.6h
> -- provided marginfigure and margintable environments modelled after
>    tufte latex (work in progress) including special justification
>    macro to force content flush against the textblock 
> -- copied the contents of the placeins package, though under a
>    different name (\FloatBlock) 
> -- added \setfloatadjustment to allow users to globally add stuff to
>    the start of floats, e.g. make typeset floating tables using \small  
> -- added the possibility to change the color of the head/foot rule in
>    the pagestyle 
> -- reimplemented the page note construction. Note that the new
>    implementation does not rely on the same macros as the old
>    implementation  
> -- Manual: checked and verified the links in the bibliography and made
>    all the CTAN links active in the PDF version of the manual.  
> -- \namesubappendices and \anonsubappendices never existed, 
>    their real names are \namedsubappendices and \unnamedsubappendices,
>    fixed in the manual. 
> -- fixed bug in \pfbreak
> -- added hook/wrapper such that packages like bidi can control the
>    typesetting direction of the headers/footers
> -- added footer and header measuring, inspired by similar feature in
>    fancyhdr. Though we do not change, say, the \headheight we leave
>    this to the user and simply warn about it. 
> -- made sure that \footnote, \sidefootnote, \sidepar and \sidebar use the same baseline stretch setting (note that for now \marginpar is not covered) 
> -- fixed a font problem inside \quarkmarks
> -- subsequent pagenotes are now separated in the same manner af footnotes
> o mem12.clo
> -- changed \headheight to 14.5pt, to match the pattern used by 
>    the other clo files.
> o memhfixc.sty
> -- now take care of using \printpagenoteshyperref to print back
>    references for page notes using hyperlinks. 
> Open Issues:
> * memoirs caption formatting should also cover the caption used within
>   the longtable package 
> * \checkifinteger has many restrictions
> * the \subbottom label handling is flawed in some cases when hyperref is loaded
> These will be dealt with in due time.
