Google Drops Third Beta of Flutter for Android and iOS UI Development
Google today made the third beta release of Flutter available to developers. Flutter is a set of tools that can help developers create user interface designs that work on Android and iOS. Google says Flutter is quick and easy to use, and can be utilized by experienced and novice developers alike. It includes frameworks for windows, widgets, animations, and image libraries. It includes a GPU-accelerated renderer and native ARM code runtime. It supports accessibility features, right-to-left text, localization, and internationalization. On the iPhone X and iOS 11, it support inline video, additional image formats, and background processes. This third beta fully enables Dart 2 with a focus on client development. It helps developers handle coding syntax. A new widget inspector makes it easier for developers to create and preview their UIs. Visual Studio Code is now fully supported, with its own dedicated Flutter extension. Last, Flutter is a toolkit for Material Design, which means developers can match Google's design language via Flutter if they choose. The end result, hopes Google, will be better looking and better functioning mobile apps that developers can create once for both Android and iOS. More information about the new features in Flutter Beta 3 can be found at the Flutter blog on Medium.
