Each major version of Bootstrap will receive at least six months of support after it is retired, followed by six months of critical bug fixes and security updates.
This official announcement from the Bootstrap team is important as website maintenance and update planning will be more projectable for developers.
According to this blog post, Bootstrap v3 will not receive security updates anymore and that’s why the Bootstrap 3 download option has been marked as deprecated and will be removed shortly. Once Bootstrap v5 is published, this new version will become our default Starter Theme and Bootstrap v4 will become an optional download.
Bootstrap 4.2 has been released yesterday with new features and bugfixes. Our WordPress Bootstrap Starter Theme v2.0 is fully compatible with this minor update.
Furthermore an update for Bootstrap 3 has been shipped with important bugfixes.
Bootstrap 4.1 has been released and our WordPress Bootstrap Starter Theme v2.0 is fully compatible with this minor update.
Go on and update your NPM dependencies to receive the new framework package.
Bootstrap 4 has arrived and our Starter Theme has been updated with a new Code base.
- Bower is now deprecated and the package management has been replaced by npm
- Bootstrap has been updated to the latest release v4.0.0
- LESS has been removed because Bootstrap 4 only supports SASS
- New /assets directory where all Frontend related assets (img, js, css) can be bundled
- Minor WordPress Coding improvements
- Tested with WordPress v4.9
