In addition to the “Release Notes” and “SPD”, there is also the “New Features" for at least some versions.

HP OpenVMS Version 8.3 - New Features and Documentation Overview (Order Number: BA322-90046)

For VAX/VMS 5.0, 5.2, and 5.3 I know “New Features” books are the little Grey Paperbacks like the nice Systems Manager book.  I think for v6 and v7 they were the standard sized books, but I can’t easily get to those books right now due to the rack I’m installing. 

Unfortunately the documentation that HPE had online appears to have vanished.  A lot of this should be on Doc CD’s.  It looks like VSI only has the current documentation online, and it’s in PDF form.
