Google plans to boost Fuchsia OS development in 2023

Google is ramping up the development of the Fuchsia OS. While it remains the primary author of Fuchsia, it is now opening up more parts of the OS's development to the public. Interested developers can take a peek at the open source project's bug tracker, for example, and can even submit patches.

Google also made public the project's roadmap to prove that it isn't simply a skunkworks endeavor. Interestingly, a lot of it involves a "version 2" of the operating system's major components, indicating that the current state of the project is far from the form that Google has envisioned for it.

We can also expect Fuchsia on Nest speakers to Fuchsia, with new models hinted for 2023. Everything shows that Fuchsia can start its popularity soon.

Fuchsia OS on Samsung phones?

As reported by several independent sources, Samsung is involved in the development of Fuschsia OS, and recent reports suggest the company is ready to ditch Android entirely and switch to the new system. Of course, such a shift would take years and the two systems would coexist for a long time. We cannot expect Samsung to take such a big risk overnight, because if Fuchsia OS does not work out, may bury the entire mobile department of the manufacturer.

Nest Hub Max may soon run Fuchsia

The Nest Hub Max may soon be switched to Fuchsia — Google’s homegrown operating system as internal testing ramps up. Earlier this year, Google took the bold step of updating existing first-gen Nest Hub smart displays from their Linux-based Cast OS to the company’s long-in-development Fuchsia operating system.

At this point, there’s no way to know how long it will be before retail Nest Hub Max devices will be updated with Fuchsia, if at all. If things follow the pattern of the original Nest Hub, Fuchsia will be made available first to those in the Preview Program in the Google Home app.

News for flutter:

  • Flutter apps now more performant, use less memory and startups faster.
  • Performance testing are easier with new DartDevTools and profiling features
  • Casual game development with Flame v.1.0.0
  • It easier than ever to connect apps to back-end services(Firebase and Google Cloud)
  • Authentication with Firebase are much easier than before.
  • Major updates for flutter ecosystem(Like FlutterSVG, and etc)

News for Dart:

  • Constructor tear-offs
  • Improved enums in the dart:core library
  • Dart DevTools included in the Dart SDK
  • New pub features for package publishers

Announcing Dart 2.15

Isolates became to ~100x faster in Dart 2.15

Isolates spawned via the Isolate.spawn() API are now grouped, operate on the same managed heap and can therefore share various VM-internal data structures.

This leads to ~100x faster isolate startup latency, ~10-100x lower per-isolate base memory overhead and ~8x faster inter-isolate communication.
