>From the README: 

o memoir v3.7i

-- indexes now uses protection when being moved from the aux to the
   idx file(s)

-- changed loading ifpdf, ifetex, ifxetex and ifluatex to just loading
   the new iftex package. Suggested by The LaTeX Support Team.

-- new feature for \createmark: the <show> variable now accepts:
   nonumber, shownumber and notitle (implies shownumber). The latter
   enables chapter headers to be just of the form "Chapter <number>"

-- By request, added a7paper and b7paper options (plus \stockavii,
   \stockbvii, \pageavii and \pagebvii)

-- changed the header construction for tableofcontents and
   friends. The anchor that hyperref will use for TOC, LOF etc entries
   in the TOC will now point above the header not below it.

-- changed a few things in \subbottom, which hopefully fixes an issue
   with hypcap, https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/440399/3929 (and

-- the handling of \absindent, \absparsep is now correctly described in
the manual (any changes of these of use of them has to be delayed to
the start of the document via \AtBeginDocument)

-- Updated the patched \InputIfFileExists to match the one used in the
   2019/10/01 format (if using that format, we use the old version)

-- Updated the embedded copy of the booktabs package, bringing it in
ling with booktabs v1.6180339.

-- Changed the warning emitted at the start of loading the caption
   package. Apparently users got spooked by it. The caption package
works just fine with with memoir, the warning is just there to remind
users that once the caption package is loaded, all caption related
configurations should go through the caption package interface, not
through the class interface.

-- Fixed a bug in \lofmark and \lotmark when using the oneside option.
The default headings style uses \markright for all marks under oneside,
but due to an ordering mistake, \lofmark and \lotmark would still be
using \markboth unless you explicitly issued \pagestyle{headings} in
the preamble. This is now fixed.

-- fixed bug in \newfootnoteseries, the included footnote type did not
support more than one paragraph. Is now long.

-- fixed bug in \pagenote[...]{...}. Under hyperref
   \pagenote{.}\pagenote[.]{.}{\pagenote{.} did not add a separator as
   expected. It does now.

o memhfixc v1.18

-- added a \par to \contcaption to get rid of a sporadic space coming
   from \refstepcounter under hyperref

-- additionally added a patch when hypcap is loaded, now using
   \contcaption is no longer an error (hypcap looks to see if \caption
   has been used)
