Bootstrap 3.0 Final Lands in Divshot

Bootstrap 3.0

It's been just three weeks since we announced support for Bootstrap 3.0.0 RC1 and much has changed (a little more than we expected, in fact, but we'll get to that in a moment). Bootstrap 3.0 final was released yesterday, and today we're happy to announce Full Bootstrap 3.0 support in Divshot!

What's new?

I'm not going to go into all of the new features of Bootstrap 3 in-depth here, but the official announcement post covers things at a high level. Here's what's new for Divshot users:

Bootstrap 3 is the new default. New projects will automatically use Bootstrap 3 as the default framework. We will, however, offer Bootstrap 2.3 as an option for those who aren't quite ready to make the switch.

Advanced Grid Configuration. We're providing access to the full complement of size, offset, push, and pull options for the Bootstrap 3 grid system. It can be a bit daunting at first glance, but it's also very powerful.

Components updated and ready to go. We've been tracking the changes to Bootstrap carefully and have updated our whole component set for the final release. Everything should "just work".

Themes Locked and Loaded. We've already updated Themestrap and our two Bootstrap 3 themes for the final version. We've also pulled in the freshly-added Bootswatch 3.0 themes. They're all readily available for all new Bootstrap 3 projects.

What about my Bootstrap 3 RC1 Projects?

When we released support for Bootstrap 3 in Divshot, we took the "Release Candidate" status at face value and expected that few if any changes would land before the final version was released. Boy, were we wrong!

There were more than 1,000 changes leading up to the final release of Bootstrap 3.0 and many of these were breaking changes from the first release candidate. This means that for now we're forced to support 3.0.0-rc1 as a separate release. We'll be trying to find ways to help early Bootstrap 3 users migrate in the coming weeks, but if you have any questions about it, just shoot us an email.

How do I upgrade from Bootstrap 2.3?

We have built a Bootstrap 3 HTML Upgrader that will make a best-effort attempt to convert Bootstrap 2.3 HTML to Bootstrap 3 compatible HTML. It also lists out all of the rules that it's using when it upgrades, so you can use that as a kind of checklist for manual upgrades.

In addition, there's an official migration guide that might provide some additional support.
