After much searching, I finally found a link to the V05.06 manuals:

What I was surprised to learn is that there is even a Volume 0 manual:
AA-M214D-TC RT-11 Quick Reference Manual
is the manual which is placed into this volume.

Also the Release Notes manual PDF file and that link are:

However, I have NOT been able to locate is a PDF for the
V05.07 RT-11 Release Notes.  That front page has the following


System  Release  Notes

Order Number  AA-5286M-TC

October 1998

This manual contains the technical changes made to the RT-11 Operating
System since Version 5.6 and supplemental Notes from the Version 5.6 Release
Notes applicable to this version.

Revision/Update Information:  This revised manual amends RT-11 System
                                               Release Notes AA-5286L-TC

Operating System:                   RT-11 Version 5.7

Computers & Communications

Number of Pages in each Section:

Pages i to ix
Pages 1-1 to 1-11
Pages 2-1 to 2-17
Pages 3-1 to 3-21
Pages 4-1 to 4-6
Pages A-1 to A-2
Pages B-1 to B-8
Pages C-1 to C-30
Pages D-1 to D-1
Pages E-1 to E-8


If anyone knows if the V05.07 RT-11 Release Notes manual has been
scanned and the PDF made available on the internet, a link to that location
would be appreciated.
