Version History:

In-place upgrade to MS-DOS® versions 6.00, 6.20, and 6.21, adding data security enhancement and DRVSPACE support. Backward compatible with DBLSPACE drives. Likely the final release of MS-DOS®. With the introduction of Microsoft Windows® 95, what would be MS-DOS® version 7.0 was integrated into the Microsoft Windows® operating system. At this point the genealogy of MS-DOS® officially ended in terms of a stand-alone 16-bit operating system. However, IBM® continued to release PC-DOS® on their own as a stand-alone product until May of 1998.
