Bootstrap 3 released

If you are a web developer or a frequent web user, you may have heard of Twitter Bootstrap, a style and layout framework created by Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton at Twitter. Since its release, its been used on a huge amount of projects including many blog templates leading to a much more streamlined and consistent web experience for web users.

Well, on July the 27th, the version 3 release candidate was made available to the masses at
After a few teething issues with bad links and such, the new documentation seems to be working nicely. The framework is drastically different to version 2 to the extent that the developers have decided to prioritise mobile platforms before desktop, but there are still familiar styles and approaches that maintain that Bootstrap feel.

I look forward to seeing how version 3 progresses and seeing how template developers integrate the new framework into their projects.
