Summary0014660: include sed-4.5 in CentOS 7 ?
DescriptionHello,

CentOS 7's /bin/sed-4.2.2 is 5.5 years old, with no significant package update, in spite of the many improvements and bug fixes[1] since then. Notable improvements from 4.3:
- sed's regular expression matching is now typically 10x faster
- sed now uses unlocked-io where available, resulting in faster I/O operations.
Yesterday, I released sed-4.5 [2], with fixes for a few more bugs.

Would you please consider including newer sed in CentOS 7?
Thanks,
Jim

When/If RH updates sed, CentOS will inherit that as well.
