Bootstrap 2.1 and 2.2 – what’s inside the box?

After version 2.0 of Twitter’s Bootstrap has been released a while ago, there are two new releases: 2.1 and 2.2.

Bootstrap is a open-source HTML/CSS toolkit (Apache 2 licence) to build modern websites or web applications. It’s not a framework but a set of css styles and jQuery plugins to help kick starting your application with responsive layout and modern design that works on desktop browsers as well as on mobile devices.

The new features and improvements of Bootstrap 2.1 include:

  • Submenu support on dropdowns
  • New Affix JavaScript plugin – make elements of the page stick to the top when you scroll
  • Block level buttons – a new css class to create buttons with full width
  • State classes on table rows – paint table rows in the color of success, warning, info or error colors
  • Navbar component is now white by default, can be switched to black with a separate css class .navbar-inverse
  • Fluid grid offsets

See the official blog post for a full list of changes.

The new features and improvements of Bootstrap 2.2 include:

  • new page templates / examples
  • new media component – Abstract object styles for building various types of components (like blog comments, Tweets, etc) that feature a left- or right-aligned image alongside textual content.
  • new variable-driven typographic scale

See the official blog post for a full list of changes.
