Twitter Bootstrap Edition

Today Twitter released Bootstrap 2.0 - the new and highly anticipated version of their popular frontend framework by Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton. After its release in 2011 Bootstrap gained a lot of attention among the developers and not long ago its repository became the most watched open source project on Github.
By popular demand version 2.0 includes new responsive grid, huge icon pack and lots of new components, like nav lists, enhanced drop-down buttons, accordion, carousel and all-directions tabs.  
We dedicate this issue of The Daily Web to Bootstrap, as one of the most useful open source projects for web development in the past couple of years, helping hundreds of web developers to kickstart their apps.
