CSS Flexbox Level 1 Updated

Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Flexible Box Layout Level 1, which defines the flex layout model. 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. We expect this model to be particularly useful for UI layouts.

This update resolves the undefined behavior of block-axis percentage margins and padding and addresses issues found since the 19 October 2017 publication. Exact diff-marked changes, and their justifications, are available in the changes section and a disposition of comments is also available. There remains one significant issue open, pending a Web-compat investigation.

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-flexbox-1]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
