This Week In Dart #22

It has been quite a while since the last TWID! It has been an interesting week for Dart so a good chance to kick it off again. Watch out for more weekly features on the blog.

The journey to 1.9 continues and it is taking a bit longer than usual - Kevin Moore explains why and the new features. Kevin has also commented on the announcement that the Angular 2.0 project is switching to Typescript in the wonderfully titled post Angular.ts.js.at.dart.wtf.

You can try out 1.9 now by using the unstable channel for Dart. Two features I am looking forward to hitting stable are the improved analyser and an improved code formatter. It's great when the tools are working WITH you!

Hacker News has a great discussion thread for Q+A's on the new Dart Enhancement Proposals.

Finally, catching up with some slightly older news, Dart Designer has been released. - "Graphical tooling based on Eclipse Sirius for the Dart programming language." - Check out the video below.
