Foundation 6.4 has dropped and it is AWESOME. This new release is jampacked with some incredible new features that enable you to build layouts and designs with Foundation that weren’t possible before.
The Incredible XY Grid
Foundation 6.4 includes a brand new, super powerful default grid called the XY Grid. This is a truly 2-dimensional grid, giving you all sorts of control over the way things are laid out vertically as well as horizontally. Imagine all the crazy cool layouts you can do with CSS Grid but built on Flexbox so that it’s actually usable in all-browser production environments today!
Foundation now uses Flexbox by default. Don’t worry, there’s still a fallback to float-mode for those who absolutely must support legacy browsers, but Flexbox is our recommended approach.
Prototyping Made Easy
Foundation 6 has always focused on supporting the entire lifecycle of a project from Prototype to Production, but the line between the two has sometimes been fuzzy. With Foundation 6.4, we're beginning to be much more explicit about parts of the framework that are intended for rapid prototyping but should not be part of your production project. As a part of that, 6.4 is shipping with a whole new slew of optional prototyping helpers and a "prototype mode" to speed up prototyping.
Magellan's "smooth scroll" behavior has been separated out into it's own plugin, which you can use to create "smooth scroll" behavior for any links inside a page.
In addition to these slick new features, we’ve included loads of optimizations and bugfixes that make this version of Foundation our most powerful, flexible, and stable version yet.
