Highlights for build 8641:

Fixed 29+ issues in the static analyzer!
Added new syntax coloring to highlight the use of var variables, and to distinguish member and static fields from local variables (aka semantic highlighting)
Added new syntax coloring to show other uses of the currently selected variable (aka mark occurrences)
Added support for the “as” operator
Added a warning if the + operator is used with strings
When debugging a command-line app, the debugger will break on uncaught exceptions (TypeError and AssertionError). More to follow!

New Dart Editor build 8350

A new Dart Editor build is available:

Highlights for build 8350:
The command-line debugger is now enabled. Debug your server apps! Debug dart2js!
Fixed 15+ static analysis issues.
Bigger stepping granularity in debugging; one step now equals one source line.
When re-launching your app we re-cycle the Dartium instance when possible, instead of always killing the process and restarting Dartium.
Various Searchbox fixes.
Dart2js is now the default (and only) Dart-to-Javascript compiler in the editor.

Resumen de trabajo del Equipo de Google Dart

Me gustaría compartir algo interesante que se ha publicado en el grupo de debate de DART y que nos permite conocer la marcha de trabajo y el futuro del lenguaje.

En lo referente al compilador de Dart a JavaScript ya se están preparando para dejar como obsoleto “frog” y eliminarlo del SDK. Están trabajando a fondo en las pruebas de conversión del nuevo compilador “dart2js”, corrigiendo gran cantidad de problemas de compatibilidad y reduciendo el tamaño de los ficheros generados en 3-4%.

Dart Team’s digest

Hi, I attached new Dart Team’s digest.

Very very interesting and important if you’re using dart:dom.

It’s been a while since the last update, but here’s a summary of some of the recent events in Dart-land.

In the Dart to JavaScript Compiler we’re getting ready to deprecate frog and remove it from the SDK. We increased test coverage for dart2js on build bots, fixed a bunch of browser compatibility issues and landed liveness analysis resulting in 3-4% code size reduction and less temporary variables. Finally, we’re now generating smaller code for simple tear-off closures.

In Dartium, we’re phasing out dart:dom and are now supporting wrapperless dart:html.

For the Dart Editor we now have new and improved Editor documentation! We also improved code completion in the absence of explicit type information. We have improved type inference in if, while, for and for-in statements and all launches now run in checked mode by default. All launches (JavaScript and Dartium) now serve from a server and not from a file: url. (This plays better with loading resources using XHR and the browser security model). Analysis results now cached between sessions which leads to faster start-up. Finally, we fixed a number of issues including, an issue with lots of warnings related to final fields and a performance issue with the outline view.

For Dart Server side libraries we published instructions on building native C/C++ extensions for the standalone Dart VM, landed feature enhancements and bug fixing in the HTTP, File and Directory interfaces. Finally, we’ve introduced hardening of the APIs to deal gracefully with unexpected arguments.

Important change on compilation DART to JavaScript process

Recently DART Team published a note on the DART discuss where they tell us has been an important and significant change on the DART to Javascript compilation process.

Currently, the way to run our applications written in DART is compile it to JavaScript so that browsers can run our code.

All of this will change when the virtual machine that runs our DART code natively is deployed and supported by most popular browsers, in particular Google Chrome will support it natively.
