Dart 1.17 has just been released. This time the team chose to focus on bringing more performance improvements to the table. Dart is moving full steam ahead and collects users’ praises with each new release.
Dart 1.17 can now be downloaded. The team’s goal was to make sure Dart is “even more productive for developers,” which is why they have optimized their core tools deal with large applications and have seen significant improvement over the last two releases. One of the strengths of Dart 1.17 is the increased stability of Dartium; the speed of the Dart Analyzer has been improved by over 200 percent on large codebases. Plus, Dartium startup time on large applications at Google has improved by a factor of 4.
This release also contains several smaller changes to core SDK APIs.
