The developers behind HTML5 Boilerplate have released version 4 of their boilerplate HTML, CSS and JavaScript templates for quickly prototyping HTML5 designs.

You can grab a copy of HTML5 Boilerplate v4.0 from the HTML5 Boilerplate website.

This release is notable for a number of changes including a snazzy new website, cleaned up and reorganized code and the beginnings of a high-resolution-screen @media query. This release is also notable for what it lacks, namely the trademark pink text highlight color which has been ditched in favor of a more neutral blue.

Version 4 of Boilerplate also updates the various code libraries that Boilerplate relies on, including jQuery, Modernizer and the very awesome Normalize.css.

You can see the complete changelog for this version over on Github and get any help you might need with HTML5 Boilerplate at Stack Overflow.
