There are some changes:

It is grunt.verbose.writeln.

Sometimes after auto-generating the changelog you want to be able to review the generated changes or add some notes to the current release, you can polish your changelog manually without changing your workflow (you might use grunt-release in the workflow but need grunt to wait until you have finished polishing your changelog).

Here are some examples of how to achieve this.

grunt.initConfig({
 
  // grunt-shell 
  shell: {
    changelog: {
      options: {
        stdinRawMode: true
      },
      command: 'subl -w CHANGELOG.md',
    }
  },
 
  // or grunt-spawn 
  spawn: {
    changelog: {
      command: 'vim',
      pattern: 'CHANGELOG.md',
      commandArgs: ['{0}'],
      opts: {
        stdio: 'inherit'
      }
    }
  },
 
});
 
...
 
grunt.registerTask('publish', ['conventionalChangelog', 'shell:changelog', 'release']);
 
// or 
 
grunt.registerTask('publish', ['conventionalChangelog', 'spawn:changelog', 'release']);
