"This release marks Dart's transition to a production-ready option for web developers. The Dart SDK 1.0 includes everything you need to write structured web applications: a simple yet powerful programming language, robust tools, and comprehensive core libraries," Google explains.
"Together, these pieces can help make your development workflow simpler, faster, and more scalable as your projects grow from a few scripts to full-fledged web applications," it adds.
The Dart SDK has everything you need to get started, including the Dart Editor, a code editor, and IDE for the Dart language. But there's one more tool at least that could come in handy, Dartium, the Chromium fork which supports Dart natively.
Dartium comes with a Dart virtual machine built in, so any Dart app will run natively and at full speed. Granted, that's only useful for developers and the development process, as no one actually uses Dartium as their main browser.
"Going forward, the Dart team will focus on improving Dartium, increasing Dart performance, and ensuring the platform remains rock solid. In particular, changes to core technologies will be backward-compatible for the foreseeable future," Google concluded.
