Here is what i see of the DOS versions.

I have not heard of 1.17, 1.19, or 1,24, but there is a version 1.85 out there. IBM used it for embedding in things like typewritters etc. Note also that some of the MS-DOS 1.2x versions have a gwbasic 1.12. GWBASIC, like BASICA, tends to follow DOS versions.

I have not heard of the DOS 2.x versions listed, after 2.11,

3.40 appears to be an internal DOS build by IBM, essentially with the features of Compaq 3.31. This became 4.00 in the end, but the basica.com of it was released. Likewise, IBM DOS 3.31 is known from a released basica.com (which generally follow the DOS version). However, these versions of basica.com are from OS/2 2.x and 1.x respectively.

DR-DOS issued 3.40 and 3.41. There is talk of various forms of 3.3x, 4.41 etc, but these are isolated references which is not supported in the BDOS calls.

GS-DOS 4.04, 4.10 are actually kinds of MS-DOS 6.22 emulations. The 4.04 refers to the package version, not the program version.

Datalight ROMDOS is a package that variously emulates 3.30, 5.00, 6.00, 6.22, 7.10 (according to the release). The package is based on the DL code release. My collection has 2.10, 2.50, 2.60, 4.10 and 4.20 (several subbuilds).

MSD.EXE first appeared with Winword, but exists before this under the name of INFER.EXE. Its first appearence in a DOS/Windows is in WinMME as 1.10.36, and then in Windows 3.10 and DOS 6.00 (and later). Vers 1,x reports the version of the cdrom installed.

MS-DOS 5.00a is pretty common, really. The english version has a date eg 1991.11.11. The german version i have has a date 1991.06.11, but i do not know what version this corresponds to. None of the core OS files were updated in the release. In English countries, one has only 1991.06.04 and 1991.11.11 releases.

PC-DOS 5.00.1 is the first release of PC-DOS after the break from Microsoft. DOS5EIUB.EXE is a file that unpacks to a 720K "disk 0". You use this with dos 5.00 (with the service packs applied), to update machines on Non-IBM machines).

A version of MS-DOS 5.02 is doing the rounds. I've seen reference to it on the MSFT site, but that is all i have seen. The thing is optimised to run Windows 3.10 better (much like PC-DOS 5.02), but its version is still 5.00, much as the earlier versions of DOS.

5.10 seems to be a drdos Multi-user DOS, i never heard of any other form

DOS 6.07 in my list, is MS-DOS 7.00 beta 1, built on the 6.00 code base. There is a second beta which is built on the 6.22 code base, this is allocated to 6.27 on the catalogue.

DOS 6.10 is IBM's DOS 6.00, variously rebadged to 6.10. Command.com always report 6.10, the "truever" through something like MSD reports 6.00, and the manuals say 6.00 and 6.10. There was never a version of MS-DOS 6.10.

6.27 is the allocation point for the MS-DOS 7.00 beta 2, which is built on MS-DOS 6.22.

MS-DOS 6.30 is a stringhack on 6.22.

PC-DOS 6.37. I recall seeing screenshots of this, with an apparently DOS or Windows version of Workplace Shell on it. Never saw the real code, though.
