A note on Bootstrap dependencies

Keeping track of issues has become increasingly difficult without a strict dependency on specific minor versions of Bootstrap. The original intention was that the 2.x.x series of Bootbox would simply require Bootstrap >= 2.x.x - since both projects use Semantic Versioning this should have been possible. However, Bootstrap 2.2.x (and possibly 2.1.x) introduced breaking changes - or at least changes considered backward incompatible in the context of this project. Over time bugs started getting raised which eventually turned out to be due to subtle changes in Bootstrap's code. Therefore, 2.5.1 was the last release which will support Bootstrap 2.0.x and is not guaranteed to work with anything higher than Bootstrap 2.0.4.

Bootbox 3.0.0 is the first release to support Bootstrap 2.2.x. More about this on the Bootbox website.

Roadmap

The next major release of Bootbox - 4.0.0 - will involve a complete rewrite of the internal code and introduce an entirely new public API. It will most likely require Bootstrap 3.0.0 (assuming that sees the light of day first).

You can get a quick overview of the roadmap in the form of the project milestones as listed in the issue tracker.
