Use next stable release section in instead of dev releases.

Having a section for each dev release causes a difference between the master
and dev branch. That means there's always a merge conflict when doing dev
releases, and that doing a dev release requires merging the dev
back to master. We can avoid that churn by instead having a section for the
next stable release on the master branch.

This change means the master branch will no longer contain the history of
the dev releases leading up to the next stable release. However, we merge
all of those entries together anyway when doing a stable release, and the
changes in each dev release can be consulted by checking out the appropriate

A client-optimized language for fast apps on any platform

Dart is:

  • Optimized for UI: Develop with a programming language specialized around the needs of user interface creation

  • Productive: Make changes iteratively: use hot reload to see the result instantly in your running app

  • Fast on all platforms: Compile to ARM & x64 machine code for mobile, desktop, and backend. Or compile to JavaScript for the web

Dart has flexible compiler technology lets you run Dart code in different ways, depending on your target platform and goals:

  • Dart Native: For programs targeting devices (mobile, desktop, server, and more), Dart Native includes both a Dart VM with JIT (just-in-time) compilation and an AOT (ahead-of-time) compiler for producing machine code.

  • Dart Web: For programs targeting the web, Dart Web includes both a development time compiler (dartdevc) and a production time compiler (dart2js).
