IMHO this is wrong, the numbers tagged to the end of a shared-object thats
used as a shared library really have nothing to do with the release version
number. The number is only used to distinguish compatibility of different
release of the same library.

And you cannot really go back to 4.2.0 now that 4.9.0 is going to be
released. The only option would be to move forward to 5.2.0. So still no
exact match between release-version and soname.
