At one time, I had all of the "Software Update Notices" for the 1000s, but
of course I threw them away when we moved offices. :-( Still, from the
DSD 4.0 Communicator (March 1986), the last update to the diagnostic
library was at revision 2326 (mid-1983), and just the General Purpose
Register diagnostic was updated from the 2040 set. My March 1986 HP 1000
price list has the 24396 diagnostic library in the "mature software"
category, meaning that no further updates, barring major new bugs, were
So, as far as I know, the Bitsavers manual set is the latest set, with the
exception of the GPR diagnostic manual.
