Bricks 1.2 introduces the long-awaited “Container” element, which is replacing the “old” section, row, and column layout.

Users who already created their Bricks site prior to version 1.2 need to migrate their old Bricks section data to the new container layout. Bricks comes with a built-in container migrator, so you don’t need to re-create your site from scratch. Due to this complete layout change, you most likely need to perform a review of your migrated data.
