Since TSX-Plus and RT-11 are closely related, I am also interested.

I am curious. Will V6.05 of the binary distribution be made available?

Will any version of the commented source code be made available?
The last time there was any mention of the commented source code
files, I understand they had been OCRed, but not converted to text
acceptable to MACRO-11.  Has this status changed?  Also, I seem
to remember that the commented source code files were from V6.03,
not from V6.05 of TSX-Plus.  Has that status changed?

In case you are interested, it is possible to use the UnMac application
to produce UNCOMMENTED source code from the OBJ files.  If
the Commented Source Code Files are from V6.03 of TSX-Plus, it
should be easy to produce source code files from both V6.03 and
V6.05 of TSX-Plus binary distributions, then perform a SRCCOM
to determine the differences.

I have added a few features to RT-11 which I would like to see in
TSX-Plus.  About 10 years ago, I looked at TSUSR to see what
could be done there.

Please comment on what hobby users would be allowed and supported
to do with the TSX-Plus distributions?
