You’re correct. This did change as part of a refactor of the navigation code.
This breaking change was announced on flutter-announce, but you’re right of course that it’s missing from the list in the blog. We’ll get that updated — thank you for pointing this out.
We are. Hundreds of Google developers are writing Flutter code who don’t work for the Flutter team. The Google Nest Hub (formerly known as Home Hub) relies on Flutter for its UI, and there are many other big and small projects, mostly unannounced, using it.
That would be challenging, since it is only available on iOS 13 and above. You won’t be able to use it in production until every phone you care about has upgraded to the latest OS version, which takes a while even with Apple’s great track record for upgrades.
We’ve not forgotten about Flutter on the web! We’re in the middle of a fairly significant exercise to unify the codebase with the core Flutter framework. More to come, but for now https://flutter.dev/web remains the best place to experiment. Warm wishes, Tim
Hi there, Tim here from the Flutter team. We working to get this supported in the stable channel by the end of June, so there should be plenty of time for you to integrate a new build prior to August 1st. No need to take emergency measures: thanks for your patience in the meantime!
Just one minor nit, if I may: the hot reload capability is primarily courtesy of the Dart runtime, rather than Android Studio. It’s available whether you use Android Studio, Visual Studio Code or even just run your app from the command line.
