New Apps view in Dart Editor

Posted by Devon Carew

A new Dart Editor build is now available. Highlights for build 8948:
  • 27 analysis issues fixed!
  • We've added a second navigation view: the Apps view. It's application and library centric rather then file centric. Give it a whirl at Tools > Apps.
  • The Mac and Linux SDKs now include a command-line version of the Editor's analysis engine. This can be found at dart-sdk/bin/dart_analyzer. Windows support to follow soon.
  • The command-line debugger now works on Linux (curtesy of the VM team). In addition, both the command-line and Dartium debuggers now display captured variables.
  • We made it a user-configurable option whether to display warnings for inferred types, and changed our semantic highlighting to emphasize variable identifiers if and only if their type cannot be inferred.
  • The samples shipped with the editor have been updated and prettified.
  • Various and sundry debugger bug fixes, search bug fixes, code completion updates and fixes, and indexer and analysis performance improvements.
