Not sure how useful this comment is:
4th edition:  Covers 1997 UBC, 1997 NDS
5th edition: Covers 2003 IBC, 2001 NDS
As you know, seismic design has changed quite a lot.  I've not done an exhaustive review of 5th edition, but suspect Kelly Cobeen could give you the exact run-down on the significant changes.

Have you ever seen a later edition that was NOT thicker? "Revised and
