Folder Renames

#2483: When using Flutter 3.3 / Dart 2.18, moving or renaming a single folder will now update import statements the same way renaming a single file will. Renaming/moving multiple files/folders at once is not currently supported.



New Debug Adapters for Dart and Flutter

New debug adapters (which provide the interface for VS Code to communicate with a running Dart/Flutter app) are available when using Flutter 3.3 / Dart 2.18. These new adapters are written in Dart provide some bug fixes and performance improvements over the original Dart-Code TypeScript adapters and will be easier to maintain/fix going forwards.

Users will be switched to the new adapters gradually over the coming releases, but they can be explicitly enabled/disabled by setting the dart.previewSdkDaps setting to true (opt-in) or false (opt-out). If not set (undefined), the extension will decide when to enable the new adapters.

Some initial improvements in the new adapters:

If you notice any unexpected differences when using the new SDK DAPs, please file an issue. You can tell whether you’re using the new SDK DAPs by using the Capture Debugging Logs command before launching your app and checking whether the log contains “Running SDK DAP” instead of “Running debugger via node”.





Features Enabled with Flutter 3.3 / Dart 2.18

Many features and fixes that previously required using pre-release versions of Dart/Flutter are now available after upgrading to stable Flutter 3.3 and/or Dart 2.18 SDKs.

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!
