Great news! We have a fancy new update for Bootstrap Builder v2.1 build 205
available for download. This fresh release includes some pretty awesome stuff including a new Components Library, a more precise "click" and "drag-n-drop" workflow, over 50 new Google Fonts, plus a bunch more backend tweaks & changes. This is one whopper of a release! :-)Included with this release:
- The CoffeeCup Components LIbrary is live! It’s packed with pre-built customizable components to accelerate your production time. Simply click to add a responsive menu, cards, button groups, alerts, and more to the page. Can be used with any existing project too! You can also save your custom components and reuse them with your other projects.
- Take payments on your site using customizable PayPal Elements.
- Always stay up to date with the latest and greatest build using the ‘Check for Updates’ feature. The app automatically phone's home once every seven days to check and see if any updates are available.

- New X-Ray Mode. This handy ability allows you to see how the rows, columns, and containers are set up on your canvas.
