CSS Grid Layout Level 1 Updated

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.

The editors consider this draft to be the final design draft. There are a few open issues left, but these are mostly fixes and clarifications to the algorithms–the main one of which is ensuring the flexbox and grid flexing and fragmentation algorithms are in sync. There’s also one on visibility: collapse, which might be nice to solve, but might get pushed to Level 2. We will be updating the spec as we work through these, but don’t expect to make any significant changes to any existing features–unless someone sends a comment that requires such a change.

Your feedback is still welcome on the featureset and syntax. However because we’re hoping to prepare the final draft the week after TPAC, we would greatly prefer to receive said comments in time for discussion at the the CSSWG F2F–which begins on the 25th of October 2015.

We are looking especially for

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-layout]) and your comment topic in the subject line. Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment, post something on your own blog and send us a link, or leave a comment here.
