Version 10.7: "Lion" (July 2011)
Version 10.8: "Mountain Lion" (July 2012)
Version 10.9: "Mavericks" (Oct 2013)

cross referencing the os release dates & reason release dates we can see:
reason 1.0 was released same time as mac os x, Cheetah! 10.1
reason 2.0 was released during the prominance of jaguar,
reason 2.5 was released during the prominance of panther,
reason 3.0 was released during the prominance of tiger
reason 4.0 was released during the prominance of leopard
reason 5.0 + Record were released during snow leopard
reason 6.0 was released originally during lion
reason 6.5 during mtn lion
reason 7.0 released for mavericks
now the above facts are not exclusive compatibility wise but rather its just coincidence, timing wise

its a real shame propellerheads didnt continue to support os9 at least untill v3!
would be cool to have the combinator, but at least we have NN-XT
