This morning we pushed out a 2.3.2 patch release to address a single bug (see #7118) related to dropdowns and command/control clicking links in Firefox.
Work on Bootstrap 3 continues and we’re almost ready to do an official release candidate. We’ve addressed nearly all our chosen changes and are now at a point where we’re smoothing things out as much as possible. We’ll share more information on the RC and v3 in the coming weeks.

Today we’re launching a new project to showcase the absolute best projects built on Bootstrap, the Bootstrap Expo.
The Bootstrap Expo is all hosted on GitHub, meaning recommending new sites is as easy as opening a new issue. It also keeps the primary Bootstrap repo focused on code and documentation, and not dozens of extraneous images.
As a side note, the Expo is the second project appearing under the twbs organization (this blog is already there in private mode). We’ll be moving Bootstrap and the Customizer over with v3 soon.
Until then, enjoy and <3.
Until then, here’s what’s new with 2.3.1:

Side note: Aside from the fixes in this release, future bugs will only be addressed in 3.0, or punted entirely, as appropriate. This release just fixes a few things left broken that we didn’t feel comfortable ignoring for the next several weeks.
It has been far too long, friends. Nearly three months has gone by since we pushed out a new version of Bootstrap, but fret not, for that void comes to a most excellent halt tonight. After numerous delays, including a bout with the flu, we’re happy to announce the release of Bootstrap 2.3.
Bootstrap 2.3 includes some new features, as well as the standard bunch of bug fixes and docs improvements. Here are the highlights:
containeroption to tooltips. The default option is still
insertAfter, but now you may specify where to insert tooltips (and by extension, popovers) with the optional container parameter.
width, have been widened from 240px to 280px, and will automatically hide the title if one has not been set via CSS
:focusstate as well. This goes for basic
<a>tags, as well as buttons, navs, dropdowns, and more.
display: inline-block;, increased
margin-bottom, and added
vertical-align: middle;to match
.horizontal-three-colors()gradient mixin (with example in the CSS tests file).
.text-rightutility classes for easy typographic alignment.
@ms-viewportso IE10 can use responsive CSS when in split-screen mode.
As always, you can see a more complete list of changes by viewing the 2.3.0 milestone or 2.3.0 pull request on GitHub. Most of the issues not mentioned above are minor CSS tweaks and documentation typos.

When we released 2.2.2, we changed the insertion strategy for tooltips and popovers. Instead of appending to the
<body> by default, they used
insertAfter. This change fixed number
z-index issues and ultimately makes controlling and styling tooltips much easier for folks.
Unfortunately, this also resulted in a few bugs, namely breaking input groups by interfering with adjacent CSS selectors. Instead of reverting the insertion method, we’ve added a new
container option. If you run into a situation where
insertAfter doesn’t work for you, go ahead and set that option to whatever element works best for you.
As we’ve previously mentioned, v2.3 is our last planned release before moving onto v3 fulltime (pending any catastrophic fuckups). For the latest, follow the Bootstrap 3 pull request. Otherwise, here’s the lowdown:
And that’s just some of the highlights. Again, peep the pull request for the most up to date changes as we continue to chip away at this bad boy. Feel free to comment on that, or hit us up on Twitter, for feedback of any kind.
