You are right! The CD32 was a final revision. A patched version was quickly released. Here is the interview in Amiga Format issue 57. Check out pages 44 and 45.

if printed title on the disks, then its part of a comp and have bugs fixed and copy-protection removed because of a shared manual (see pic below)
CD32 all bugs fixed, new features and copy-protection removed
Looking at the scans of the floppy disk versions here: http://hol.abime.net/629/diskscan

As all the disks are blue I am assuming you mean the 'white label' disks are the first revision. They show copyright '1992' on the label. The black labelled disks have copyright '1993' so these must be a later revised version. My own boxed copy of Frontier is the black label variety.
