Express-generator pug vs jade

Is there a new version of express-generator? After installing the express-generator npm I looked into the package.json file and noticed jade instead of pug was in the list of dependencies.

I'm not sure if there is or not but what i did was change the jade dependency in package.json to: "pug": "^2.0.0-beta11",

and in app.js change the view engine to: app.set('view engine', 'pug');

and finally change the file extensions in the views folders from .jade to .pug.

Also, if you're using sublimetext you can add a package for formatting of .pug files: https://packagecontrol.io/packages/Pug

pug = jade. They are the same just the name changed.
