A new, wide-ranging study of fossil teeth is providing new insight into how our ancestors transitioned from forests to grasslands as their primary habitat. While the article makes it sound like this is all very new information, the transition from woodland to savannah has been widely acknowledged since at least the 1980s. What this mainly seems to have done is refine the timeline, give greater information on how many species were out there at any given time, and exactly what they ate.
