replacing our first generation backend with a new shiny and improved implementation. We expect to complete the transition within a few weeks after which we'll be back to having only one way of compiling
optimizations such as local type inferencing, loop-invariant code motion, and function inlining. The compiler runs on top of the Dart VM and makes use of the new server-side libraries such as dart:io. It is really nice to see things coming together this way!
As always your feedback on what works well and what doesn't is really important to us, so I hope you'll continue to file bugs and speak your mind on our mailing lists.
