Welcoming Bootstrap v1.3
September 17, 2011
Here’s the lowdown on what’s new to Bootstrap 1.3:
- Inline labels for marking inline content with key visual flags
- Media thumbnails
New and updated docs
Now, about those docs: there is a lot of new stuff. We’ve added more example markup and information on how to use Bootstrap’s code with 1.3 and will continue to do so with every release. To that end, here’s an outline of the big changes to the docs:
- Three complete example pages of using Bootstrap, linked from main docs page with thumbnails
- Added section for compiling Less, for guidelines on how to recompile Bootstrap with Less
- Added section for customizing grid variables in Less
- Added section for code for using pre and code tags
- Added section for form field sizes that match grid column sizes
When you’re done here, be sure to checkout those beautiful new Bootstrap docs here.
We got (fixed) issues
Also included in 1.3 is a hefty set of resolved issues from GitHub and other important style changes. Fun fact: to date, we’ve closed over 200 issues on GitHub. That’s huge!
- Updated table styles to be just a tad bit more refined
- Added new form input sizes based on the Bootstrap grid system (meaning now you can do
input.span5for a 280px-wide input)
:activelinks in Firefox
- Fixed unqualified
.clearfixthat added bottom margin to all containers
.container()mixing to be
.fixed-container()to prevent conflicts when compiling
- Added focus states (either
:focus) to all buttons, links, and inputs
- No longer require
h3in topbar, but still support for backwards compatibility
For a complete list of issues fixed in 1.3, view the milestone on GitHub.
We’ve also created a new Twitter account, @TwBootstrap, for announcements, feature and release teasing, and open-ended discussion. Be sure to follow along for the latest as we continue on with development.
Now, go checkout the latest Bootstrap on GitHub!
