Is there a way to find the year that MMA functions were introduced via programmatic calls in the Wolfram Language? I would like to be able to create and manipulate such a list or dataset.

find the year that MMA functions were introduced via programmatic calls

You can use, as an example

 WolframLanguageData["DSolve", "DateIntroduced"]

Mathematica graphics

So it is a matter of just running the above over all the commands you want.

The above returns a DateObject

See Looping through all functions defined in Mathematica for example of looping over all build-in functions.

    $\begingroup$ +1 We can also write things like WolframLanguageData[All, {"Name", "DateIntroduced"}]. $\endgroup$ – WReach Jul 28 at 4:33
