    Default Manual for NewDOS/80 1.0 for TRS-80 Model I?

    I've looked in all the places I could think of, but can't find the manual for NewDOS/80 1.0. Plenty of hits for 2.0 and 2.5. Anyone know if there is a scanned version out there?

    If memory serves the early version is called Newdos+ and its an enhancements package (or re-write) of the more buggy parts of TRSDOS 2.1

    Newdos/80 V2.0 was the first release of a new OS designed from the ground up.

    Not quite. Yes, NewDOS+ was released in 1979 and was a heavily patched TRSDOS 2.1. Apparat referred to this as NewDOS/21 in the Model I NewDOS/80 2.0 manual on page I-1. The documentation is still an amusing read. NewDOS/80 1.0 came out in June 1980 before the release of the Model III. I have disk images for the Model I in my collection. I have not been able to track down a manual. NewDOS/80 2.0 came out for both the Model I and III in 1982.

    Still hunting for the V1.0 manual. I did find a 3rd-party quick reference card, which helps decipher differences between V1.0 and 2.0
