Bootstrap 5.3.0-alpha3

@mdo April 03, 2023

Hot on the heels of our second alpha, we’re releasing a third (and unexpected) alpha for v5.3.0 today with some fixes for some Node Sass compilation errors. In addition, we’ve added a handful of other updates. We’re still on target to ship our stable release soon!

Once again, if you’re new to the v5.3.0 alpha releases, please read through the Migration guide for the first alpha and last month’s second alpha.

Here’s a look at what’s changed in this quick release:

  • Fixed wrong interpolated variables with node-sass/Hugo.
  • Added a check for interpolated variables to catch compilation errors with Node Sass when using Sass variables in calc() functions.
  • Started using --bs-border-radius variables across more components.
  • Added .d-inline-grid utility class.
  • Fixed .tooltip-inner placement when using variations in fallbackPlacements.
  • Fix selectors for dark mode carousel overrides when compiling with $color-mode-type: media-query.
  • Updated the styling of floating labels when “floated” to include a background-color to help with multiple lines of text in textareas. This also fixes the colors when form elements are disabled in floating forms.
  • Updated RFS to v10.0.0.
