Version 2.3 of Dart released

over 3 years ago by IanDorfman

Version 2.3 of Google's Dart programming language has just been released, and it implements plenty of quality of life features for the developers that utilize it to build client-focused versions of their web apps.

Dart Product Manager Michael Thomsen posted a 5-minute blog post on Medium explaining the changes, which can be summarized into three main points as follows:

• Additional list-based, conditional, or repeated user interface expression features. These are language features, not markup commands; this means they are fully composable and usable in any context where you work on collections. These features received a dedicated blog post back in March detailing the work.

• The implementation of a User Interface Guides feature to Dart's integrated development environment support. These make it easier to see the tree structure of Flutter UI build() methods.

• The Dart development team deployed two new websites: for the Dart platform itself, and for downloading packages to build web apps and Flutter using Dart. Alongside updated documentation, the websites are easier to navigate and feature an explanation of the core benefits of the Dart platform.

The Dart software development kit, alongside its website and all other aspects of its construction, are open source and available via GitHub.
