d4... e4 has been the conventional wisdom for a long time but i read somewhere recently that white has a higher winning percentage in tournament play with d4, and that this is a relatively recent turn of events, e4 having the higher percentage up until the last couple of decades. the article chalked up the sea change to modern players favoring the sicilian defense.
