HTML5 Boilerplate is out with the new version 4.0.0.
There were some significant changes since the last version that are listed up in the changelog (also see below). Most of them because of the excellent work by Nicolas Gallagher – thanks for leading HTML5 Boilerplate with such great effort.
This was done throughout the last seven months of development and resolving bugs:
Add documentation in a separate folder – everything that is directly concerned with the project was moved from the wiki
Switch from Public Domain to MIT license
Separate Normalize.css from the rest of the CSS
Improve console.log protection
Replace hot pink text selection color with a neutral color
Nicolas introduced a better image replacement technique
Code format and consistency changes (<3!)
Remove superfluous inline comments
CSS file and JS files & subdirectories were renamed
Sadly we could not integrate Grunt.js into the project with some simple tasks because we had to face certain problems when it comes to integrate the CSS file that is build by Grunt into the repository and other impediments.
Sorry for this german post. For more information on this topic please check out the post “Where Are My Rounded Corners?”. Thanks to Daniel and Steffen at /gebrüderheitz. Manchmal sind unsere Kunden verwirrt, wenn sie sich ihre neue Website im Browser anschauen und sie anders aussieht, als das Design, dass sie freigegeben hatten. In diesem Merkblatt erklären wir, warum es viele Vorteile gibt, diese Unterschiede zu akzeptieren und dass diese Vorteile die Nachteile überwiegen. Lange Zeit haben wir die Gestaltung von Websites so gehandhabt, als ob es Printmedien seien. Hier findet nun ein Umdenken statt, denn das Internet unterscheidet sich
Some weeks ago Paul Irish published his article about TAFEE (Tiered, Adaptive Front-end Experiences) and shares Paul Boag’s booklet called “Where are my rounded corners?” which tries to describe why it is better to design for the future and modern browsers and not spending too much time trying to get the website’s design working in older browsers (namely Internet Explorer 7 and 8). The booklet was originally published in Paul Boag’s blog. Paul describes why he did this this: One of the biggest areas of confusion among our clients is progressive enhancement. They wonder why the beautiful design they signed off
