No they don't, there are plenty of 3.1 pieces left in 3.9. And how/where are the v42 pieces documented? In the source code, I presume.

* Clock from 40.1 to 42.1.

On disk, Not KS.
Yes - good old clock, that barely anyone uses. Nothing really new, maybe some bugfixes and it now features a $VER string, seems the old 3.1 one was missing that.

* Updated iffparse.library from 40.1 to 42.2.

On disk, not KS.
I don't know what is new here.

* Updated CrossDOSFileSystem from 40.19 to 40.24.
On disk, not KS.
I don't know, nor do I care - this filesystem (with its odd quirks, like charset/linefeed conversions) is simply redundant today, we have FAT95.

* Updated Wait from 37.3 to 42.1.

On disk, not KS.
Option flag FILE/K added, wait can now wait for a file to exist, yay.

* Updated Sort from 37.3 to 42.1.

On disk, not KS.
Option flag DESCENDING/S added, reverses the result, yay.

* Updated BindDrivers from 38.2 to 42.1.

On disk, not KS.
BindDrivers, the command that deals with files in SYS:Expansion.
I never had any file in SYS:Expansion, did you? I am curious what hardware needed this features. Anyways, I have no idea what this update is, I have not looked at the changelog.

* Added led.image 42.2.

On disk, not KS.
A class that never was released, and hence never was used.
I do not quite see the purpose of putting this in the BB, what software will ever use it?

* Added MacPaint datatype 42.1.
* Added ICO datatype 42.1.
* Added PCX datatype 42.1.

On disk, not KS.
I skipped these, as I simple never use those formats, and even if I did, there are far better alternatives on aminet.

To sum it up - _nothing_ in the kickstart was updated with v42 components, there are plenty of 3.1 (and earlier) modules left.
