The docs seem to indicate that Hiera 5 is included with Puppet 4.9+. But the version that is included seems to be 3.3.2.

What is up with that, and is there a way to install Hiera 5? I understand it is meant to work in Puppet 4.10. Am I missing something?

Hiera 5 is completely inside of the puppet code base. We are still bundling the deprecated hiera 3 to cater for those that have not switched over, and for those that have version 3 hiera backends that are not hiera 5 compatible.

Not very explicit but explained here

Hiera 5 is built-in in puppet, and accessible via puppet lookup cli.

hieracommand is hiera 3.x and remains there for some reason I don't understand.
