History of AutoCAD versions

Anyone know the years of release for AutoCAD (and LT) going back over the
years?
I have a pretty good idea when 2004, 2002, 2000i, 2000, R14 and R13 were
released, but wondered if there was a definitive list somewhere. Better
still, a list showing significant changes with each release.
What about R15? Was there ever such a thing? I have came across some
references to it.
Thanks.

After the first release of LT (sorry I don't have the dates or version numbers) there were introductions within a few weeks either side of the full AutoCAD releases. Maybe someone else has tracked those ... ___

A2K would have been r15 but AutoDesk knew about the odd numbered release curse, and so cleverly changed strategies. Calling it r15 draws comparison with the earlier, slower/buggier odd numbered releases.

I have a copy of AutoCAD LT for Windows (3.1) still running on my Laptop (release date was December 1993). It still works although I hardly use it anymore because it's not quite so functional as AutoCAD 2002.
