upgrade to 2.09.08. Lots of changes & fixes since version 2.07:

C.1.1 Version 2.09.08

    * Fix __OUTPUT_FORMAT__ assignment when output driver alias is used. For example when -f elf
      is used __OUTPUT_FORMAT__ must be set to elf, if -f elf32 is used __OUTPUT_FORMAT__ must be
      assigned accordingly, i.e. to elf32. The rule applies to all output driver aliases. See 
      section 4.11.6. 

C.1.2 Version 2.09.07

    * Fix attempts to close same file several times when -a option is used.
    * Fixes for VEXTRACTF128, VMASKMOVPS encoding. 

C.1.3 Version 2.09.06

    * Fix missed section attribute initialization in bin output target. 

C.1.4 Version 2.09.05

    * Fix arguments encoding for VPEXTRW instruction.
    * Remove invalid form of VPEXTRW instruction.
    * Add VLDDQU as alias for VLDQQU to match specification. 

C.1.5 Version 2.09.04

    * Fix incorrect labels offset for VEX intructions.
    * Eliminate bogus warning on implicit operand size override.
    * %if term could not handle 64 bit numbers.
    * The COFF backend was limiting relocations number to 16 bits even if in real there were a way
      more relocations. 

C.1.6 Version 2.09.03

    * Print %macro name inside %rep blocks on error.
    * Fix preprocessor expansion behaviour. It happened sometime too early and sometime simply
      wrong. Move behaviour back to the origins (down to NASM 2.05.01).
    * Fix unitialized data dereference on OMF output format.
    * Issue warning on unterminated %{ construct.
    * Fix for documentation typo. 

C.1.7 Version 2.09.02

    * Fix reversed tokens when %deftok produces more than one output token.
    * Fix segmentation fault on disassembling some VEX instructions.
    * Missing %endif did not always cause error.
    * Fix typo in documentation.
    * Compound context local preprocessor single line macro identifiers were not expanded
      early enough and as result lead to unresolved symbols. 

C.1.8 Version 2.09.01

    * Fix NULL dereference on missed %deftok second parameter.
    * Fix NULL dereference on invalid %substr parameters. 

C.1.9 Version 2.09

    * Fixed assignment the magnitude of %rep counter. It is limited to 62 bits now.
    * Fixed NULL dereference if argument of %strlen resolves to whitespace. For example if
      nonexistent macro parameter is used.

    * Macros parameters range expansion introduced. See section 4.3.4.
    * Backward compatibility on expanging of local sigle macros restored.
    * 8 bit relocations for elf and bin output formats are introduced.
    * Short intersegment jumps are permitted now.
    * An alignment more than 64 bytes are allowed for win32, win64 output formats.
    * SECTALIGN directive introduced. See section 4.11.13.
    * nojmp option introduced in smartalign package. See section 5.2.
    * Short aliases win, elf and macho for output formats are introduced. Each stands for
      win32, elf32 and macho32 accordingly.

    * Environment variables read with %! or tested with %ifenv can now contain non-identifier
      characters if surrounded by quotes. See section 4.10.2.

      section 5.3.
