FUP version 1.1 is extremely old and outdated. I strongly recommend that
you trash it.
The latest version we've published is 1.6. It works well with LambdaMOO 1.7.8p4.
Soon (maybe even today), I'll release version 1.7, which we've tested with
LambdaMOO 1.7.9alpha1.

All the information you need is in the file FUP.README, which is included
in the package. This is, assuming you got the full package.

The place to get FUP from is:
You can find there the minimal FUP package with instructions on how to
install it into your MOO, and also MOOFUP, the latest MOO server with FUP
already installed into it.
In addition, there's room for contributions of MOOcode that uses FUP. But
there isn't much there, as people are too lazy to contribute stuff.

There's an extremely quiet mailing list we've set up for announcements and
discussion of FUP stuff. To subscribe,, with the message: subscribe FUP
<your full name>.

Again, FUP 1.7 is almost ready.
