Preview: Embedded DevTools

#1488/#2578: A new setting (dart.previewEmbeddedDevTools) has been added that allows running DevTools embedded inside the VS Code window. This feature is experimental and requires DevTools v0.2.6 or later.

DevTools will become disconnected when you stop a debug session but if you leave the window open, it will be automatically reconnected when you start a new debug session.

Cupertino Icons and Colors

#2150/#2149: Cupertino icons and colors are now rendered in the gutter in addition to Material icons and colors.

Debugger inspect()

#2137/#2560: Calling dart:developer’s inspect() function will now print the object to the Debug Console in an expandable form allowing properties to be examined similar to the variables/watch panels.

Note: This only works for non-Widget classes as the Widget Inspector also uses this function in order to navigate source code.

Improved Outlines

#2475/#2515: Both the Flutter Outline and standard Outline trees have been updated with some additional labels (including return values and text/icons for Text/Icon widgets).

Update Imports on Rename

#2482/#2507: The update-imports-on-rename functionality added in the last release is now enabled by default. Set "dart.updateImportsOnRename": false in your VS Code user settings to disable this.






Some issues have been fixed in the LSP server in the Dart SDK. These fixes only apply when using the preview LSP support ("dart.previewLsp": true in your VS Code user settings) and when using a new enough version of the Dart/Flutter SDKs (which may not yet include stable channels).


Upstream Issues

Some feature requests and fixes require new features and fixes in upstream projects like VS Code and LSP which use counts of 👍s on those issues to help gauge demand. The Dart-Code website now lists some of the most significant upstream issues with a description of the feature/fix they would enable. Please consider reviewing this list and adding your 👍 to any GitHub issues relevant to features you’d like to see!
