CSS Flexbox Level 1 Revision 1 Update, Call for Comments

The CSS Working Group has published another Last Call of CSS Flexible Box Layout Level 1 in response to feedback on the recent changes. Flexbox is a new layout model for CSS: the contents of a flex container can be laid out in any direction, can be reordered, can be aligned and justified within their container, and can “flex” their sizes and positions to respond to the available space. This is an update to fix various problems, particularly in the layout algorithm, found through implementation review and experience during the Candidate Recommendation phase. As before, the CSSWG is not revoking the call for implementations: we’re just issuing an LCWD to process the changes.

To help with review and with correctly updating implementations, exact diffs since the original Candidate Recommendation, and their justifications, are available in the Changes section. A Disposition of Comments is also available. The Last Call comment period ends 25 October 2014: please either send comments by then, or request an extension; we plan to process them during TPAC.

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