#52732 new defect (bug)

'get_posts' has been waiting for so long to have a hook

Description

I reckon get_posts is the most (frequently) used function across many plugins or scripts. I know there are internal WP_Query hooks available, but that makes things harder to get into.
I think having hook on get_posts will be very useful and easy for people / developers to remind & amend things easier.
patch attached.

Hi there, thanks for the patch!

Could you provide a use case that would be easier to achieve with this new filter than with the existing WP_Query filters, e.g. pre_get_posts, posts_results, the_posts, and others?
