  Its great to see Amiga tool updated
  Could it have some Vamp related functions in future versions?
  1.1 is latest one?
  You're welcome to include UHC Tools with coffin! Go right ahead, the version on aminet simply connects to us and installs the latest version so it should always be the latest one! We are updating the included tools frequently so it's always good to run uhcupdate every now and then!

Ah cool, I use UHC as well, The synergy client works surprisingly fairly well. Well Hopefully now I won't need to re-install it on future Coffin builds.

He didn't write that it will be included with Coffin, only that it could be.

That is 100% true, but having permission + having actively developed 68k software (which is a point of Coffin) = there is no reason NOT to include it with next release.

Hope maintainer will do it.
