Tech preview of Chromium with Dart VM now available

Yesterday during an episode of Dartisans (our Hangout On Air broadcast with the Dart team), we announced that binaries of Dartium, a special build of Chromium with the Dart VM, are now available for download!

This means you can run Dart code directly in Chromium, without the need to first compile to JavaScript. As we work on Dartium, we simultaneously continue to work on a fast Dart to JavaScript compiler. Both the Dart VM and JavaScript are first class targets for Dart.

This special build of Chromium is a technology preview, and should not be used for day to day browsing.

Read more about this announcement at the Chromium blog and the Google Code blog. Download Dartium and let us know what you think!

Special thanks to our guests Vijay Menon and Anton Muhin, engineers on the Dart team, for joining us to announce the good news. Please watch the full video from the Hangout below and learn more about what Dartium can do.
