This Week In Dart #11

The Dart Editor and SDK was updated to version 0.7.6_r28018. There's a number of new features for the Editor - REPL in Dartium, a new HTML/CSS editor, faster dart2js and new Polymer.dart samples. The official Dart site has a good round-up of the features with graphs & screenshots.

And whilst you are over at DartLang.org, you should cast an eye over this article The Event Loop and Dart. It does get a little confusing with a few notes on Dart bugs that complicate things but there's key Dart concepts here.
If you are feeling a little lost, Seth Ladd's Path Finder example might get you back on the right track! As usual the code is available on GitHub.


The Polymer.dart revolution continues but there was an important clarification on the mailing list re:WebUI support:
One thing to keep in mind is that Web UI is still maintained. We're not adding new features, but we're ensuring it still works.
See here for the full post on Google Groups.

This resource doesn't seem new but I stumbled across it for the first time this week and bookmarked it quickly. synonym.dartlang.org gives Dart Code examples and there equivalents in Python, Javascript and C#.

That's it for this editon of TWID. Build something great with Dart in the week ahead!
