Bootstrap 3 Released

Hey Everyone,

I found out today that Twitter Bootstrap 3 (my favorite framework) was released today and I already started building with it! I was wondering if anyone else has checked it out yet and if so what did you think? If you have not looked at it yet, check it out here: http://getbootstrap.com and come back and tell me what you thought.

Since I didn't really get a chance to use any of the previous versions, I can't say much about its improvement, but I love it :D I might be a bit biased, because I just built a site on top of it...

I love it too. I just finished a site using it too! check it out: http://www.bobsautobodybrockton.com

It is my parents business. I build a website for them and they love it.

Oh, neat (: I enjoy how non-bootstrappy it looks :D, here's mine: http://hellosunschein.com/

I beat you to the punch 22 days ago! Lol. Yes, I think its a great step up from V2.3 and I also have a WP site theme in the works built on top of it.

Haha nice! I definitely love the improvements and they are adding more features. I am getting use to the flat design but do not hate it

I agree, flat design has taken me some time to warm up too. It presents new challenges in it's own way. I really dig the new control V3 gives you over grids and grid position. I'm also slightly jealous your thread is getting more love than mine :)

Personally, I'm digging the flat design. But not for all types of websites. For example, it doesn't particularly appeal to me for a "service" website, unless the site is about the web.

Personally I think the 2.3.2 site was easier to navigate through and see examples.

I'm usually on Bootstrap's Docs daily. I've noticed almost every day their documentation has evolved and changed. I would give it more time for for the docs to mature if you're having a hard time getting through it. There is no reason you can't still use 2.3.2 if that is where you are comfortable, and than convert over to 3 later if you so wish. If not, no biggie.

It took me probably 2-3 days to figure out 3 when I was so use to 2.3.2. Now that I do, I really like the added control they have given us with the grid system.

But certainly use what you like.
