I'm in Singapore for CSSConf.asia, it's very humid and also very strange being GMT+8. Very much looking forward to talking about layout with the community here.
There are now over 5,500 people getting this newsletter - thank you for being one of them. I'm always on the lookout for new sponsors, there is an actual cost to sending this out plus the time taking to pull together the links each week so sponsors help to ensure that continues.
Hot on the heels of the Intent to Ship for Chrome, here is news of Firefox, they intend Grid to ship without needing a flag enabled in Firefox 52.
Note the discussion about subgrid here. I am very keen that we do get subgrid support for grid, the feature is marked as 'at risk' in the spec and no-one has yet implemented despite a revised version of subgrid being discussion earlier this year. If you have use cases that would be solved by subgrid, I'd be interested to see them in order that we can get a better idea of how this would be used in practice.
With Grid shipping in other browsers, we all need to do a serious stare in the direction of Microsoft. Grid Layout started with the early implementation in IE10, it would be great to see them update the implementation in Edge.
As serious stares don't translate too well to text based communication, I'd suggest going and voting on the matter at this link.
I'll be speaking at An Event Apart in 2017, along with a whole bunch of other lovely people. I've a code you can use to get $100 off any two or three day event in 2017. Use AEARADW when buying your ticket.
