The newest stable release of Flutter has arrived. Version 1.12 closes the year with plenty of new features, performance improvements, bug fixes, and more.
Flutter, the open source UI software development toolkit was created by Google and is used to create apps for mobile, web, and desktop. Its hot reload, expressive UIs, and native performance are just some of the reasons that it soars.
See how it has grown and what the highlights of the newest release are.
Beta web support
When you think of Flutter, inevitably your first thought is mobile app design. However, it is expanding its reach with beta web support. Web compatibility uses a Dart compiler and the Flutter architecture that devs already know.
Mariam Hasnany, product manager at Flutter, posted about the news:
Developers build apps that need to run both on mobile and web. It’s important to us that you can design and build what you want, and know that with Flutter it will work beautifully anywhere you need. As a developer, learning a single set of skills that can easily transfer across multiple platforms is desirable. Web support for Flutter enables developers to use the same code, ship features faster, and ensure consistency for their experiences across devices.
In v1.12 this feature graduates from just a tech preview to beta.
