Bootstrap 5 has officially landed! After three alphas, three betas, and several months of hard work, we’re shipping the first stable release of our new major version. It’s been a wild ride made possible by our maintainers and the amazing community that uses and contributes to Bootstrap. Thanks to all who have helped us get here!

Keep reading for details on what’s new compared to v4 and what’s coming for subsequent releases. Want to get right to it? Head to the new v5 docs or fly by the seat of your pants and just npm i bootstrap.One of the biggest changes with v5 came with our redesigned logo and updated docs design. Inspired by the work we’ve done in Bootstrap Icons, our new logo is a callback to CSS’s curly braces and our longstanding B icon. It’s a small upgrade, but a fun one nonetheless, and one that we feel helps set the tone for this new major release. Still the same Bootstrap, just slightly refined. And the new docs are brighter, better organized with new content sections, and also feature improved navigation.

One of our big new component additions is the all-new offcanvas!

Built on and sharing fundamental pieces of our modals, our new offcanvas component comes with a configurable backdrop, body scroll, and placement. Offcanvas components can be placed on the top, right, bottom, or left of the viewport. Configure these options with data attributes or via the JavaScript APIs.
