Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of Front End News. I hope you will find the following topics both interesting and useful.
Bootstrap is "the world’s most popular front-end open source toolkit", being used by over 25% of the pages that are now live (according to the 2019 Web Almanac published by the HTTP Archive).
The v5 also comes with a new documentation site (built with Hugo instead of Jekyll) and a brand new shiny logo. Gone is the "ol’ B in a rounded square", as it is being replaced by the same B in a curly braced square.
Firefox 77 rolled out last week and we now got the developer release notes. For example, there is now a Compatibility panel in the Page Inspector that shows the browsers supporting the CSS properties in the page. For more details and the full list of changes, you can check the article linked below.
Adobe will stop distributing or updating the Flash Player after December 31st. The official recommendation is that all users should uninstall Flash Player before the End of Life date.
You no longer need to be online to use the 2019 Web Almanach. The document is now available as a downloadable PDF file, in both English and Japanese.
Here are the updates and releases for this edition. In each case, you can find the full details in the release notes linked down below.
I also stumbled upon the following news items and I thing they were way too interesting to be ignored, but they were also not fitting in the normal episode structure.
