In Bootstrap4, .panel and .well have been replaced by .card. This is a great advancement as cards are most helpful tool for making mobile responsive websites. However, new layouts and content options are also new added feature. New layouts are available for use and these are concise, grouped, and of same height.

Font is Larger:

In New Bootstrap4, font is minimum 16px, and new “Display headings” has been included that really standalone item. The new `em` based sizing is a great option.

Some components have been taken away from Bootstrap 4. The Glyph icons icon fonts are no more available, but other fonts like Font Awesome, Oct icons or Ion icons are good to use. The Affix jQuery plugin has also been removed. The new option is using HTML5 position: sticky poly fill instead.

Utility Classes:

One of the notable new features in Bootstrap4 is the addition of responsive floats that allows users to float a component (right,left, etc..) grounded on the grid tier. For example, if developers can consider a situation where they prefer to impose right-align elements (float:right) on exact breakpoints, and else gets returned to the dodging behavior of float:none. Here pull-md-right is applied to float right only on the mid grid tier.
