New Dart Editor Build with Expanded Windows and Chrome Apps Support



Dart Editor has new build. Eric Clayberg  fills us in on the details:
A new Dart Editor build is available at www.dartlang.org/editorChanges include:
  • Windows love!
    • You can now debug command-line applications from the editor! This was a long-awaited feature.
    • The command-line dart_analyzer tool is now available in the Windows SDK (dart-sdk/bin/dart_analyzer.bat).
    • Various Windows bug fixes and UX cleanup.
  • Several changes in support of building Chrome Apps:
    • Add a setting to allow the user to pass custom flags to dart2js (like --disallow-unsafe-eval). To configure this, right-click on a project and choose 'Properties'.
    • Added a manifest.json editor.
  • Improved support for Dart code in html files
    • Syntax highlighting
    • Analysis for inline scripts.
  • Package version information is now shown in the Files View
  • The Problems view can now optionally just show problems for the currently selected project.
  • Improved css and yaml editors
  • Filter log entries during test execution
  • Various analysis, editor, theming and refactoring fixes
