Google has moved Dart to GitHub including the entire SDK, the VM, dart2js and various libraries.
The move to GitHub has already taken place and in the announcement made on Dart News, Seth Ladd sees it as a positive step for the community, saying:
We hope our move to GitHub helps more Dartisans become active participants in the future of Dart.
Another part of the project to be curtailed affects the developer tools. At the end of April Seth Ladd broke the news:
We are retiring Dart Editor at the Dart 1.11 release. WebStorm is the preferred IDE experience for Dart, and the Eclipse plugin for Dart will continue to be supported.
Now an announcement on its Google+ circle reveals that:
we’ve decided to stop our active investment in Chrome Dev Editor and we don’t plan on further development.
However, for those who are disappointed one commentator points out:
Its an open source project on GitHub and it lives. Fork long and prosper!
Frequently we've seen Google devote lots of resources to projects only to abandon them. At least these are on GitHub and so there is hope of an afterlife without Google.
