Flutter 1.0

Flutter has been already moving very fast, not just the code, the whole community is also growing very rapidly. The main updates with Flutter 1.0 are bug fixes and stabilization. There are also some new things like Dart 2.1 and previews for “Add to App” and “Platform Views”.

Flare is a tool that allows you to create vector animations that can be embedded into an existing Flutter app as a widget. The tool is really intuitive and it helps the designers and developers work on their modules without affecting each other’s work.

Hummingbird was something that we didn’t expect to be announced this time. It’s an experimental web-based implementation of Flutter runtime. What this means is that you can write your app in Dart and, in addition to compiling to native ARM code, you can also target JavaScript which enables your Flutter code to run on current standard web browsers. This is revolutionary and a treat to all developers. We’ll come on this with a different post soon.

More on this over here.

Google Maps

And now finally we have the official Google Maps widget in Flutter. This was by far the most awaited and most requested widget from the whole developer community. Though the widget is still in beta it will soon be released.

This wraps up the article and we hope that Flutter is really going to do more great stuff in the future.
