Announcements

This was an especially busy week for Dart as Google I/O was this past week, May 11-12, available to stream online.

This year saw a lot of exciting content and announcements for developers using Google products or services, including Dart 2.17 and Flutter 3.

The following are some handpicked, interesting changes:

Keep in mind, none of these changes are guaranteed to eventually land in a stable release.

Package of the week

The package of the week is rohd!

The Rapid Open Hardware Development (ROHD) framework is a framework by Intel for describing and verifying hardware in the Dart programming language. ROHD enables you to build and traverse a graph of connectivity between module objects using unrestricted software.

Dart's package ecosystem is growing fast, and we want to help foster that growth. If you know of any great open source projects, let us know by suggesting a package on GitHub discussions.
