Grunt 0.4.0 releasedPosted on February 18, 2013
Grunt no longer ships with built in tasks. They've been extracted into officially maintained, standalone plugins under the grunt-contrib namespace. See the plugin listing on our website for more details.
Grunt no longer ships with a binary. In order to get the
gruntcommand, install grunt-cli globally with
npm install -g grunt-cli. This package will run any version of Grunt (including 0.3x) after it's been installed locally to your project.
Grunt v0.5 will ship with support for a new plugin format called node-task. It defines a stateless, promise-based, event emitting API that doesn't depend on Grunt. It has a real-live spec, and the Grunt team is working with the front-end developer community in the hopes that compliant modules will be compatible with every task runner under the sun.
