Hello and welcome to Flutter 2.5! This is a big release, with the 2nd highest stats in the history of Flutter releases: 4600 issues closed and 3932 PRs merged from 252 contributors with 216 reviewers. If we look back over the last year, we see a huge 21,072 PRs created by 1337 contributors, of which 15,172 of them were merged. While the “what’s new in Flutter” blog posts focuses on new features, our #1 job with Flutter is always making sure you have the features you need at the highest possible quality level.

And in fact, this release continues a number of important performance and tooling improvements to track down performance problems in your own app. At the same time, there are a number of new features, including full screen support for Android, more Material You (also called v3) support, updated text editing to support switchable keyboard shortcuts, a new, more detailed look at your widgets in the Widget Inspector, new support for adding dependencies in your Visual Studio Code projects, new support for getting coverage information from your test runs in IntelliJ/Android Studio and a whole new app template to serve as a better foundation for your real-world Flutter apps. This release is jam-packed with exciting new updates, which you can read about in the blog post:
