CSS Grid Layout Update, Request for Comments

Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Grid Layout Level 1. This module defines a new type of layout manager, the grid, which makes it extremely easy to specify complex, responsive 2-dimensional layouts for a page or components.

We hope to close the remaining issues over the next month and prepare to issue a Candidate Recommendation this fall, so please review the draft and the issues and send feedback! We want to make everyone happy, but that won’t happen if you complain after we’re done and everyone’s already shipped their implementations and you only bother to tell us you don’t like something two years later, yeah? So review now, and complain sooner rather than later. 🙂

Changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section, and since we forgot to announce the previous few publications on this blog, you might also want to check March 2015 and May 2014 if you’re interested specifically in changes. The most significant changes over the last year include

We welcome all feedback, particularly from Web authors. If you need a layout to align in two dimensions, this is the module for it, so make sure it handles the things you need! Please help us make this module more correct, more useful, more usable, and more readable!

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.) Known issues are listed in in this issue-tracking list.
