HTML5 Boilerplate – v4.0.0


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.

HTML5 Boilerplate v4.0.0 - Star

What’s new?

This was done throughout the last seven months of development and resolving bugs:

From the Changelog

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.

If you find bugs or potential pitfalls please let us know in the issues.

Apart from HTML5 Boilerplate Alex Gibson, Nicolas and others updated Mobile Boilerplate to version 4.0.0, so go and check it out too!

And another thing: Both HTML5 Boilerplate and Mobile Boilerplate have a new website which looks kinda awesome, I think!

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
