For those not in the know:
HTML5 Boilerplate is a professional front-end template that helps you build fast, robust, adaptable, and future-proof websites. Spend more time developing and less time reinventing the wheel. It is the product of many years of iterative development and combined community knowledge.
For those already using a previous version of the boilerplate, you might be wondering if you need to upgrade your site to the new version:
Nope. So far there have been no critical bugs within our code that we've fixed from version to version. There are some nice changes that reduce your stress, but updating your HTML or CSS to the new versions is probably more effort than it's worth.
Other significant changes include:
- Meta viewport updated to prevent iOS scaling bugs.
- Design of the 404 has been improved
- Additionas made to normalize.css and to provide better default typography
- No more forced scollbars, this impedes projets lik jQuery UI, and others in calculating widths.
- Updated to Modernizr 2.5
- Updated to jQuery 1.7.1
- Improved .htaccess
The build script now has its own GitHub Repository, and full list of comments since the previous release are also available. Also, be sure to check out the HTML5 Boilerplate Documentation which has a wealth of knowledge for HTML5 developer.
