CSS Grid Level 2 Updates: Per-axis Grid and ‘ar’ units for gutters

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Grid Level 2. Level 2 expands Grid by adding “subgrid” capabilities for nested grids to participate in the sizing of their parent grids; and aspect-ratio–controlled gutters.

The main goal of this level is to have a completed spec for subgrids as soon as possible—so while we might cull some other minor features from the list of requests, more complex feature requests will be deferred to Level 3. Changes from the last draft consist mainly of dropping the simplified “dual-axis” subgrid proposal in favor of the more powerful “per-axis” proposal and switching the syntax for aspect-ratio–controlled gutter justification to use ar units in place of bare numbers. We’ll be working through individual issues filed against these features going forward, such as control over gaps and interaction of parent/subgrid named lines, etc.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-grid-2]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
