I had the same confusing problem and finally got the following information
directly from WordPerfect, by way of my dealer in Calgary.

4.2 is out and runs on Xenix and I just installed it on my SCO UNIX
386SX clone.

5.0 is very nearly out for Xenix only.

5.1 will be out sometime in the late summer time frame...

By the way I have had no problems with 4.2 on SCO UNIX to this point. I am
disappointed however that I cannot get BitStreeam font support for WP 4.2
and support seems questionable for 5.0.

Good Luck
