State of the Dart

State of the Dart: "The libraries are the most immature, and feel a bit like an afterthought. There are excellent highly evolved class libraries to copy from, but it feels like they started from scratch. Or started from JavaScript, which is about the same thing. For example they just added Object.hashCode, and there still isn’t a Collection.equals method. But compared to JavaScript, the Dart libraries are already a giant win. I suppose they are prioritizing breadth over depth, which makes sense. So far no show-stoppers, but there is still an alarming amount of churn in the APIs."
