The secretive inner workings and machinations at Google HQ have at least this month opened up and informed us of news relating to a version 1.1 release of Dart.
The open source web programming language from Google now benefits from new UDP (User Datagram Protocol) support for servers. There are also additional breakpoint locations in the Dart Editor as well as new developer collateral in the form of new documentation to support command-line and server-side Dart applications.
Google's Seth Ladd has said that while there has been (up until now) a lot of focus on Dart for browser applications, there is also growing interest in Dart for server solutions.
"This release provides a number of enhancements for server-side Dart, including support for large files, file copying, process signal handlers, and terminal information. New in this release is support for UDP, which, for example, allows developers to write more efficient media streaming apps," he said.
Much of the Dart developer community activity is discussed openly on the Dart Google + pages.
