It was listed as the current DTS CD at the time, however given that one was released a month before in March, and in the following month in June, it probably saw limited distribution, which explains why it hasn't turned up. 1995-05 | **Sega DTS CD - May, 1995 (Missing)** | Sega | This missing DTS CD is mentioned in the DTS Newsletter Vol 3, No 7 (May 1996).

The Saturn content was significantly expanded, with more tools and documentation provided. This is a good CD to have fully archived, as it's the last DTS CD with any content for the 32X. Sega discontinued the 32X in early 1996, and DevCon 96 with its corresponding DTS CD, and the DTS newsletters in 1994, dropped all references to the 32X. 1995-11 | {% include download title="Sega DTS CD - November 1995" target="Software/Sega DTS CD - [1995-11].7z" %} | Sega | A complete image of the November 95 DTS CD, containing all the Macintosh and PC content.

All content for the 32X was dropped due to its demise, and the DTS CD now focuses entirely on the Saturn. For the first time (as mentioned in the readme), the "complete set of Saturn Documentation" was included, with a set of structured PDF files combining multiple separate manuals into larger sets of documentation, equivalent to the physical paper binder versions that were distributed previously. The DTS Newsletters indicate that at the same time paper manuals stopped being distributed unless specifically requested, with digital files becoming the primary way Sega distributed new documentation. 1996-03 | {% include download title="Sega DTS CD - DevCon 96 - March 1996 (Partial)" target="Software/Sega DTS CD - [1996-03] (Partial).7z" %} | Sega | This major DTS CD release was made to coincide with DevCon 96.

Some readme file content listing changes and contents have been posted from it however, which have been included on this partial release and used to reconstruct some file content from other sources.

This very important CD contains the "Sega Saturn-Software Development Kit 1.00J", which is the first release of a new Windows-based Saturn SDK to western developers, containing the new SGL 3.02 and a new set of PC software tools. There are also a variety of other new tools and documents included related to Saturn development. No further DTS CDs have been referenced or spotted after this one. With the active transition to the DTS website as the new method of distribution, which seemingly led to the discontinuation of the DTS newsletter in early 1997, it seems this was the last DTS CD that was created. This is reinforced by references on the website back to the November 96 DTS CD content from pages in late 1997. Some Saturn documentation saw updates after this CD was released, which were made available on the DTS website. In many cases these documents are present in the DTS Website Mirror listed above. 1996-11 | {% include download title="Sega DTS CD - November 1996" target="Software/Sega DTS CD - [1996-11].7z" %} | Sega | A complete image of the November 96 DTS CD.

The Sega Saturn is the follow-up to Sega's very successful Mega Drive (Genesis), however the Saturn saw mixed results, being popular in Japan but largely a commercial failure in other markets. For general information about this system and its games, please refer to other sources such as [segaretro.org](https://segaretro.org/Sega_Saturn). This site focuses on the technical details of the system that are important for emulation and development, and assumes a familiarity with the general and historical facts of the console.
