CSS Grid Draft Updated

By Tab Atkins Jr. January 23, 2014 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Grid. This module defines the grid display value, which allows authors to easily define complex, responsive 2-dimensional layouts.

Since the last WD publication, several features have had their definitions significantly improved, most particularly the “subgrid” feature. An overall editorial overhaul of much of the spec was also done, with the goal of making the text more cohesive and easier to understand. The auto-flow algorithm and associated properties was also significantly revised. We consider this version of the draft to be pretty close to design-stable, and will be working out details of the layout algorithms next. Please review and send comments on the feature set and syntax!

Changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section.

As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-grid]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
