Flutter 1.9 is live!
For more information, see Flutter news from GDD China: uniting Flutter on web and mobile, and introducing Flutter 1.9 and the 1.9.1 release notes.
For the 1.9 release, Flutter’s web support has been merged (“unforked”) into the main repo. Web support hasn’t reached beta, and is not ready to be used in production. Web and desktop support (which is also coming), will impact the website, which was originally written exclusively for developing Flutter mobile apps. Some website updates are available now (and listed below), but more will be coming.
New and updated docs on the site include:
- We’ve revamped the Showcase page.
- The Flutter layout codelab has been rewritten and uses the updated DartPad, the browser-based tool for running Dart code. DartPad now supports Flutter! Try it out and let us know what you think.
- A new page on using the dart:ffi library to bind your app to native code (a feature currently under development).
- The Performance view tool, which allows you to record and profile a session from your Dart/Flutter application, has been enabled in DevTools. For more information, see the Performance view page.
- A new page on building a web application.
- A new page on creating responsive apps in Flutter.
- A new page on preparing a web app for release.
- A new web FAQ.
- The Flutter for web page is updated.
Other relevant docs:
- Error messages have been improved in SDK 1.9. For more information, read Improving Flutter’s Error Messages on the Flutter Medium publication.
- If you already have a web app that depends on the flutter_web package, the following instructions tell you how to migrate to the flutter package: Upgrading from package:flutter_web to the Flutter SDK.
- A new ToggleButtons widget, described in the API docs. ToggleButtons demo
- A new ColorFiltered widget, also described in the API docs. ColorFiltered demo
- New behavior for the SelectableText widget.

Flutter 1.7 正式发布！
Flutter 1.7 is live!
打包和发布到 Android 平台 有更新，包括使用 app bundle 和为 32 位 / 64 位单独打包。
The Preparing an Android app for release page is updated to discuss how to build an Android release using an app bundle, as well as how to create separate APK files for both 32-bit and 64-bit devices.
新增 开发者工具文档 系列内容，这是个基于浏览器的开发者工具套件，可以帮助你对 Flutter 和 Dart 应用做调试、性能监控、内存检测和检查器等，同时可以直接从 Android Studio 或 IntelliJ 以及 VSCode 运行，如果你还没有试试看，推荐你看一下。
The DevTools docs are migrated to flutter.dev. If you haven’t tried this browser-based suite of debugging, performance, memory, and inspection tools that work with both Flutter and Dart apps and can be launched from Android Studio/IntelliJ and VS Code, please check it out!
简单的应用状态管理 页面有所更新，新的文档是基于 Provider 3.0 正式版的。
The Simple app state management page is updated. The example code in the page now uses the 3.0 release of the Provider package.
The Flutter 1.7 release includes the new RangeSlider component, which allows the user to select both the upper and lower endpoints in a range of values. For information about this component and how to customize it, see Material RangeSlider in Flutter.

Flutter 1.5 is live!
我们正在更新 DartPad 以支持 Flutter，可以通过这个新的 codelab Flutter 布局基础教程 来试试看吧。
We are updating DartPad to work with Flutter. Try our new Basic Flutter layout codelab and tell us what you think!

In addition, here are some recent new and updated docs:
- We’ve updated our state management advice. New pages include an introduction, thinking declaratively, ephemeral vs app state, simple app state management, and different state management options. Documenting state management is a tricky thing, as there is no one-size-fits-all approach. We’d love your feedback on these new docs!
- A new page on Performance best practices.
- Also at MWC, we announced a preview version of the new Dart DevTools for profiling and debugging Dart and Flutter apps. You can find the docs on the DevTools wiki (Note: since moved to this site.) In particular, check out the DevTool’s widget inspector for debugging your UI, or the timeline view for profiling your Flutter application. Try them out and let us know what you think!
- An update to the Performance profiling page that incorporates the new Dart DevTools UI.
- Updates to the Android Studio/IntelliJ and VS Code pages incorporating info from the new Dart DevTools UI.
If you have questions or comments about any of these docs, file an issue.
