- Dependency updates: rimraf, grunt-legacy-log, grunt-legacy-util.
- Fix race condition with file.mkdir.
date: 2018-02-07
- Fix for readYAML error messages.
- Remove deprecation warning for coffeescript. Pull #1621.
date: 2016-04-05
- minor fix for npm issues when installing grunt and grunt-cli at the same time. Pull #1500.
date: 2016-04-04
- full list of changes is on, please also see changes from 1.0.0-rc1.
- if you have a Grunt plugin that includes `grunt` in the `peerDependencies`,
we recommend tagging with `"grunt": "">= 0.4.0"` and publishing a new version on npm.
- Prevent async callback from being called multiple times. Pull #1464.
- Update copyright to jQuery Foundation and remove redundant headers. Fixes #1478.
- Update glob to 7.0.x. Fixes #1467.
- Removing duplicate BOM strip code. Pull #1482.

- full list of changes is on
- if you have a Grunt plugin that includes `grunt` in the `peerDependencies`,
we recommend tagging with `"grunt": "">= 0.4.0"`
- `coffee-script` is upgraded to `~1.10.0` which could incur breaking changes
when using the language with plugins and Gruntfiles.
- `nopt` is upgraded to `~3.0.6` which has fixed many issues, including passing
multiple arguments and dealing with numbers as options. Be aware previously
`--foo bar` used to pass the value `'bar'` to the option `foo`. It will now
set the option `foo` to `true` and run the task `bar`.
-`glob` is upgraded to `~6.0.4` and `minimatch` is upgraded to `~3.0.0`. Results
are now sorted by default with `grunt.file.expandMapping()`. Pass the
`nosort: true` option if you don't want the results to be sorted.
- `lodash` was upgraded to `~4.3.0`. Many changes have occurred. Some of which
that directly effect Grunt are `grunt.util._.template()` returns a compile
function and `grunt.util._.flatten` no longer flattens deeply.
`grunt.util._` is deprecated and we highly encourage you to
`npm install lodash` and `var _ = require('lodash')` to use `lodash`.
Please see the lodash changelog for a full list of changes:
- `iconv-lite` is upgraded to `~0.4.13` and strips the BOM by default.
- `js-yaml` is upgraded to `~3.5.2` and may affect `grunt.file.readYAML`.
We encourage you to please `npm install js-yaml` and use
`var YAML = require('js-yaml')` directly in case of future deprecations.
- A file `mode` option can be passed into
- `Done, without errors.` was changed to `Done.` to avoid failing by mistake
on the word `errors`.
