Bootstrap 4.5.1

We’re shipping our latest patch release today to fix a handful of bugs in Bootstrap 4. While our focus remains on v5’s second alpha release (coming in the next couple weeks), we want to keep v4 as stable and reliable as possible.

Our next couple releases for Bootstrap 4 will continue this trend, focusing on bug fixes, documentation improvements, and (later on) features that help bridge the gap to v5.

Next up

We’ll be shipping our second alpha of v5 in the next few weeks. We’ve been a little delayed as we focus on ourselves during these unprecedented times and have all been taking a bit of time off here and there. We’re sorry to keep y’all waiting on v5 and hope you can understand.

After v5’s second alpha, we’ll be targeting a final alpha before our first beta, as well as more patches for v4. We’ll also be releasing the Bootstrap Icons soon. So stay tuned for more!
