No matter if you hate it, Bootstrap has been and will be (for a while still) a great reference for UI Kits, CSS frameworks and the like.
Glad to see those long-awaited features. Also the removal of JS dependencies is sweet indeed.

Personally I haven't been using Bootstrap in a while, but it's not rare for me to define classes like .btn for the sake of it 😅

Completely agree with you! There are so many great front-end dev resources, libraries and frameworks to choose from. Bootstrap is and will always be a great starting point for projects and it's good to see that it took a great leap forward by removing the jQuery dependency and by also dropping IE support.

Excited for the upcoming versions. We will also update our themes and UI kits to also offer the new Bootstrap 5 jQuery-free versions 😎
