Adobe Edge Reflow & Adobe Edge Code Updated For CSS Regions

Adobe Edge Reflow and Adobe Edge Code now support CSS Regions.

CSS regions is a revolutionary CSS specification draft that allows a deeper separation of concerns in the way designers and developers structure their content and layout. They can now manage the way content should flow across different regions of the page design (hence the name CSS Regions) separately from the content itself . Then content can now be made to flow in different chains of regions, typically laid out differently for a mobile, tablet or desktop/laptop use.

Reflow now supports CSS Regions in the user interface/design surface, and Adobe Edge Code now supports CSS Regions in code hinting. Check out the video below to see CSS Regions in Reflow in action:
