The latest Google Dart SDK 1.0 version is now a production-ready released ready for Web developers to start using and features the Pub package manager, together with more than 500 packages written by third-party developers.

β€œAt Google we’ve written our share of web apps, and we’ve tried in many ways to make improvements to that development process, short of introducing a new language. Now we think it’s time to take that leap. We designed Dart to be easy to write development tools for, well-suited to modern app development, and capable of high-performance implementations.”

Google has also included tools and core libraries to help developers workflow become simpler, faster, and more scalable than perviously available says Google. For more information on the new Google Dart SDK 1.0 jump over to the Dart Lang website for details.
