Dart 1.16: Faster tools, updated HTML APIs

Dart 1.16 is now available. This release includes important updates to our tools.

Faster developer tools

In this release, we've been working closely with our users at Google to make sure Dart is even more productive for developers. We've optimized how Dartium loads applications, improving the time it takes to open an application up to 40%. We also continue to invest in faster code analysis and quicker JavaScript compile times. You should see improved performance in this and future releases.

Updated HTML APIs

In Dart 1.15 we updated Dartium to Chrome 45 from Chrome 39. In this release, we've updated our browser APIs – dart:html, dart:svg, etc. – to align with these changes. While most of these changes involve new and lesser used APIs, you should verify your application code to find and fix possible breaks.
