I was a bit at a loss with version 3 of Bootstap with the removal of the
.container-fluid but when they moved to a mobile first system this actually translates to a "fluid system". By making the framework fluid and removing references to
.container-fluid classes they cut out a lot of bloat.
What does this mean then .. well in in Bootstrap 2 you would define
<div class="container-fluid"> now simply don't define a container at all. This makes sense in some parts as a "container" should contain your code, which it does now by providing max-widths at 728px, 940px en 1170px for the large grid system. If you need to overwrite the max width you should be able to do this in a new stylesheet placed after the Bootstrap source.
