This week in Flutter #136: Privacy manifests for third-party SDKs

โ€” Newsletter

Last year, Apple announced the introduction of privacy manifests, and recently published a non-comprehensive list of third-party SDKs that need an explicit privacy manifest and a signature. Among them, there are some Flutter packages. Flutter also needs an update. The framework itself needs to be signed, but it is still unclear how it will handle the privacy manifests for third-party packages. Your app might also need a privacy manifest and it might be rejected from the App Store if you do not comply with these new requirements. Follow the Flutter GitHub issue for updates.

For now, the best thing you can do is to check if the packages you use have a new version with a privacy manifest. If they do not, you can ask the maintainers to add it. If you are a package maintainer, you can check this Flutter GitHub issue to learn more about it.

List of 2024 Leap Day Bugs

by Matt Johnson-Pint

This week, we had a leap day. An extra day in February can cause bugs if you designed your software expecting February to have 28 days. Or expecting 365 days in a year. I remember a couple of years ago, we had a test that would fail only on a specific day of the year. It was a nightmare to debug. Matt collected a list of bugs that happened on February 29 this year. It is a fun read, and it might give you some ideas on how to prevent similar bugs in your software.

That’s it for this week.
