Info on DECset V12.7?

Has anyone had a look at the release notes for DECset 12.7? I'm guessing it's probably bug fixes and minor enhancements to support newer versions of VMS?

HP for some reason doesn't have the release notes on the DECset doc page at http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/decset.html (though I have e-mailed the DECset team suggesting this.)

As I expected, the DECset V12.7 release notes reveal that it is essentially a bug fix release. In my opinion the new features here and there are pretty insignificant, but YOMV (your opinion may vary :-) There are some fixes that might be really important to those who've stumbled over certain bugs.

LSE jumped from V4.x to V5.0, yet the only "new" features were:

1) A new version of the COBOL templates.
2) The example HTML and Java templates can now be built in to LSE at install time.

Perhaps the new number was just to get the IA64 and Alpha version numbers lined up?
