I am back from the CSS Working Group in Paris, I made some notes about a couple of things you might find relevant, you can find the link in the news section of this email. I'm now back for 19 days of summer, before heading off for the start of the next conference season. No rest for this CSS nomad! You can find out where I am going/laugh at my schedule here.
The summer tends to get a bit quieter for interesting articles and news as folk head off on summer vacations. If you do write or find something interesting - let me know. You can always reply to the email, or find me on Twitter where I tweet about CSS and other things too.
Some notes from the CSS Working Group meeting. The grid-gap properties are changing to become generic
row-gap properties, which can then be used in other specifications where they make sense - including Flexbox.
In other news, I've become co-editor of the Multi-column Layout spec. Both things are explained in more detail in the post.
Chrome Status now has a schedule page so you can see what is coming up in releases of Chrome.
The updated build now available to download as a VM, has Grid enabled by default. If you want to test your grid layouts on the new Edge implementation and don't have a Windows machine with Insider Preview installed, this is a great way to do it.
A little plug for my workshop in Toronto this September, I'll be teaching CSS Layout for a full day in addition to speaking at the event. Use the code SPEAKER for 20% off tickets to the conference and workshop.
