It’s good the webinstaller and 1click updates are back. All new features in 3.1 seems to be strong ones.

.visually-hidden seems to be missing from this release’s bootstrap.css
I’m unsure where to file a bug report at this point for october/backend
These are critical to providing screen reader information. I’m sure there are also other missing helper classes as well from what is supposed to be, at least from my reading, all of Bootstrap 5.
please re-add

// Helpers
@import "bootstrap/scss/helpers";

to bootstrap.scss and recompile.

Thanks for finding this, @rkgladson.

The “helpers” include will reappear in the next patch (v3.1.21)

Thanks. I was mistaken what version my team was working with. Could you also apply this patch to 3.0.x line as well? We are unable to update to 3.1.x at the moment because a namespace conflict with your new Multisite, and our in house Site helper.

Unfortunately not. As a workaround, introduce the style via Settings → Customize Backend → Styles.

.visually-hidden,.visually-hidden-focusable:not(:focus):not(:focus-within) {
    clip: rect(0,0,0,0)!important;
    border: 0!important;
    height: 1px!important;
    margin: -1px!important;
    overflow: hidden!important;
    padding: 0!important;
    position: absolute!important;
    white-space: nowrap!important;
    width: 1px!important
