The Working Draft of CSS Grid Layout has been updated. This includes the new row-gap and column-gap features I describe in my post - Solving the Gutter Problem.
On the CSS Working Group Blog a Request for Comments on this latest Working Draft:
"We hope to close the remaining issues over the next month and prepare to issue a Candidate Recommendation this fall, so please review the draft and the issues and send feedback! We want to make everyone happy, but that won’t happen if you complain after we’re done and everyone’s already shipped their implementations and you only bother to tell us you don’t like something two years later, yeah? So review now, and complain sooner rather than later." - fantasai
Backdrop Filters are currently in the Editor’s Draft of the CSS Filters Level 2 specification, and allow you to create blurred background effects. Take a look in this blog post.
If you are in Philadelphia, are at an advanced level with CSS and want to contribute to the flexbox specification take a look at this workshop with Fantasai.
