according to https://amigalove.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=117 version 4.2 of wordperfect was not released for amiga anymore.
http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/chronology.html is also a good source for information about wordperfect versions available.
according to history page mentioned above, the latest amiga release of wordperfect was version 4.1.12 dated around january 1991.
version 5.0 was an alpha test which was never released. circulating "wordperfect 5.0" releases seem to be exact v4.1.12 copies.

It should be noted that version 5.0 would most likely be an exact copy of the last official Amiga WordPerfect release, which was version 4.1.12 released in January of 1991.
