Ability to boost newer editions as 5 publication dates does not do this job well.
Currently we have older editions showing above newer editions in Primo VE. It would be helpful to be able to boost editions by the number of the edition. Currently the date boost has only 5 possible options in Primo VE. This means you can only add 5 separate years to regulate newer editions showing above old ones. Uses date ranges doesn't work as the edition between the range get same boost. Either you need to increase the number of date boost entries or create an ability to boost by edition.

Boosting newer and especially the current edition is really needed -- institutions are trying all sorts of work arounds to make these editions more prominent for users (ex: added to Resource Recommenders). A simpler and more comprehensive approach would help the users greatly.
It makes it easier for us and the end users to see clearly what is available

I agree that newer editions should be shown above older ones, unless a patron searches for a particular edition.
