Say hello to our newest bot, No Carrier. Inspired by the classic modem disconnection error message of yesteryear, No Carrier helps us track issues that appear to have been abandoned by the original poster. Issues that go without a reply to our questions for two weeks are closed with a friendly explanation by No Carrier.
To date, we’ve handled abandoned issues just like any other issues—with ad-hoc reviews. We felt that could be improved, so we made a bot to automate the process. No Carrier appears on our issue tracker as @twbs-closer and will monitor issues we tag with awaiting-reply. Should no one reply within two weeks, @twbs-closer will post a final comment explaining the situation and our policy, and then automatically close the issue. If someone later replies after the cutoff, a member of our team will happily reopen the issue manually and continue pursuing it.
No Carrier is available for any GitHub project, not just Bootstrap. If you have a project on GitHub that might benefit from this automation, we invite you to try out No Carrier. For more details, usage instructions, and feedback, check out the No Carrier project on GitHub. You can download the assembly JAR from the “Downloads” section of the v1.0.0 release page.
Bootstrap 3.3.5 is here! This release has focused on bug fixes, accessibility improvements, and documentation updates. We’ve had over 330 commits and 160 closed issues and pull requests from over 40 contributors since our last release! Hell yeah.
Since we last shipped a release, we made an official Slack for folks to hang out with other Bootstrappers. Registration is completely open thanks to the Slackin open source project. We have two channels to start—general and help—and nearly 1,000 members to date!
Convenience aliases have been added for currency symbol Glyphicons based on their related 3-letter ISO currency codes. For example, .glyphicon-rub is a new alias for .glyphicon-ruble, the currency symbol for the Russian ruble (RUB).
We have deployed AnchorJS in our documentation to make it easier to link to specific sections within the docs.
Since our previous release was v3.3.2, you’re probably wondering why this release isn’t v3.3.3 instead. Basically, the official Sass port of Bootstrap had a Sass-specific bug in their v3.3.2 release, so they immediately issued a follow-up release to fix the bug. This bugfix release was initially numbered as v3.3.2+1. However, this 4-digit version number scheme has caused grief with some tools, so with the blessing of the Core Team, the Sass Team took this opportunity to switch to a more vanilla 3-digit SemVer numbering scheme. Thus, bootstrap-sass v3.3.2+1 was re-released as bootstrap-sass v3.3.3, with only the version number changed compared to v3.3.2+1.
To avoid confusion regarding which bootstrap-sass release(s) correspond to which upstream Bootstrap release, Bootstrap’s version numbering will henceforth skip over any bootstrap-sass patch release version numbers. Thus, the patch digit (i.e. the 3rd digit) of bootstrap-sass’s version number may be ahead of Bootstrap’s due to Sass-specific fixes, and the next Bootstrap release’s number will always be greater than the previous bootstrap-sass release’s number.

Bootstrap 3.3.2 is here! This release has been all about bug fixes, accessibility improvements, and documentation updates. We’ve had over 300 commits from 19 contributors since our last release. Woohoo!
Here are some of the highlights:
Updated Glyphicons to v1.9.
Reverted support for delegating multiple tooltips via a single element, because it caused nasty regressions.
Fixed a regression that broke wrap: false for the carousel plugin.
Added manual vendor prefixing back to carousel CSS to avoid a regression among folks not yet using Autoprefixer.
Improved accessibility of our examples and added more accessibility guidance to our docs.
We’ve also deployed two new bots to aid Bootstrap’s development:
@twbs-grunt, a bot to automatically keep our compiled /dist/ files up-to-date
We’re stoked to welcome Patrick to the Bootstrap team! Patrick brings with him terrific accessibility expertise and has already contributed many improvements to Bootstrap’s components and documentation.
