Show type hierarchy in-line with new Dart Editor

A new Dart Editor build is available at www.dartlang.org/editor. Changes include:
  • We now support showing an in-line type hierarchy view (Command-T on the Mac and Ctrl-T for Linux and Windows).

  • We have a new Quick Fix to import or create a type when it is used as invocation target.
  • General work to the Eclipse plugins including:
    • cleaning up some spurious menu contributions,
    • adding menu items to invoke dart2js and dartdoc
    • and adding the ability to open Dart files in non-Dart projects
  • Several code completion enhancements, including:
    • support for both named and optional parameters
    • showing proposals for function parameter names following unary-?
    • improved proposals for cascades
  • Web components support is now enabled on Dartium launches by default.
  • The .project metadata file has been moved out of the user's source directory.
  • The html and css editors now use a default indent of two spaces.
  • 6 analysis fixes, as well as fixes to the debugger, Outline view, feedback dialog, auto-update, and our analyze-as-you-type feature.
And as always, view the changelog for the full list of changes, and to get started with the Editor see our tutorial.
