We got a new Tailwind UI update. Here's what's they added:

And last but not least we got a tentative V3 release date, quoting Adam:

We're aiming to release v3.0 in the first week of December, so start playing with the alpha release and let us know if you find any issues!

A Deep Dive Into object-fit And background-size In CSS

I must admit I first saw the use of object-fit in one of the many code-along videos from Adam and I was awed and surprised I didn't hear it sooner, it made working with images so much easier!

But if you're like me you probably only know to use object-cover and don't know much of what the other values do, this article can help you fix that. I found it very informative and I now finally have a better understanding of background-size too!
