Tailwind CSS v2.0 is now released

Tailwind CSS v2.0 is now released and includes tons of great new features. For a quick overview of some of the highlights check out this launch video they made:

To give you an idea on the production quality of the video, Steve Shoger said on Twitter, “Music in that trailer is a custom score arranged by Adam’s friend. The opera singer at the end is singing “utility-first” in Latin”

According to the release announcement updates shouldn’t be too hard:

Even though Tailwind CSS v2.0 is a new major version, we’ve worked really hard to minimize significant breaking changes, especially ones that would force you to edit tons of your templates. We’ve renamed two classes, removed three that are no longer relevant in modern browsers, and replaced two with more powerful alternatives. Any other breaking changes that might impact you can be remedied with a couple small additions to your tailwind.config.js file. Upgrading shouldn’t take more than about 30 minutes.

From that same announcement, here is a list of the major new features:

…and a bunch of other little things too.

Congrats to Adam Wathan, and the whole Tailwind CSS team. Go check out the new landing page and get ready for the next iteration of Tailwind CSS.
