But the FAQ remains factual until someone endorses the 5th edition. I
haven't seen it yet.

This book is now in 5th edition.
And until it has been reviewed to make sure it lives up to the standards
set by the 4th Edition the FAQ needs to stay as it is.

Fair enough. Perhaps a note added to the faq that the forth is no
longer available new and an unreviewed fifth edition is available.

It does remain factual.

But it's unreasonable to encourage the purchase of a 4th edition without
mentioning that the 5th edition is imminent/published, so that the
potential purchaser can make an informed choice.
