I'm trying to work out this as well. Looking at Galahad's WHDLoad installer is a good start. It supports:

------------------------------------
SWOS v0.9 94-95 2 Disk version
SWOS v1.1 94-95 2 Disk version
SWOS 95-96 2 Disk version
SWOS UPDATE 95-96 2 Disk version
SWOS v1.0 94-95 2 Disk version
SWOS EURO96 95-96 2 Disk version
SWOS v1.52 (v1) 96-97 2 Disk version
SWOS v1.52 (v2) 96-97 2 Disk version* F I N A L
------------------------------------

If you decrunch the RNC file called 'swos2' on the disks, it tells you the version number. I have four original copies of SWOS, three of which are:

So, the question is - how do these versions match up with Galahad's listing? Perhaps:

SWOS v0.9 94-95 2 Disk version
SWOS v1.0 94-95 2 Disk version <<<(version 81??)>>>
SWOS v1.1 94-95 2 Disk version <<<(version 81??)>>>
SWOS 95-96 2 Disk version <<<(version 144)>>>
SWOS UPDATE 95-96 2 Disk version
SWOS EURO96 95-96 2 Disk version
SWOS v1.52 (v1) 96-97 2 Disk version
SWOS v1.52 (v2) 96-97 2 Disk version <<<(version 152 v2)>>>

My 95-96 above (or version 144) seems to be the first SWOS 95-96 above. My 96-97 (or version 152 v2) is the final version above. The New Improved (or version 81) should be either v1.0 or v1.1...
