Why is this change being made?
As described in #12405 (closed), I was able to shave off over a minute on the handbook build time by resolving an upstream regular expression issue. This should hopefully help with local build times as well as removing unnecessary CPU cycles in pipelines. :)
Why not wait for the next release of middleman? New releases are fairly infrequent, so accepting this MR would depend if you think it's worth using a GitHub ref for the performance improvement or not in the meantime.
edit: The new release of middleman is now available (4.4.2). This MR runs
bundle update middleman
