  Walter Roberson <roberson@hamer.ibd.nrc.ca> contributes the following 
  list:

  Here's a first draft of a table, based mostly on material that has
  appeared in Pipeline. Details up to IRIX 3.3 are largely lost in the
  mists of time, as are details about when various platforms went out
  of service.

  Note: Names with '+' should not be broken up into components.  For
  example, IRIX 3.3+3.3.2 is distinct from IRIX 3.3 and from IRIX
  3.3.2, and indicates IRIX 3.3 with a maintenance release (what would
  now be called a roll-up patch.)

  Note: IRIX 4.0.1T, IRIX 4.0.4T, IRIX 4.0.5IPR, and IRIX 5.3+5.3 TIRIX
  are Trusted IRIX releases, not general IRIX releases.

  Note: IRIX 5.2 and 5.3 releases are sometimes very hardware
  specific.  The last release listed is not necessarily the last or
  best release for all hardware.
