This week in Flutter #72

GitHub’s supply chain security supports Dart

A couple of days ago, GitHub announced that supply chain security now supports Dart. This means that GitHub can now provide reports about vulnerabilities in the dependencies you use in your Flutter apps.

Earlier this year, Dart support was added to dependabot and it was just a matter of time until the other GitHub supply chain security services would support it as well.

Michael Thomsen also wrote an article about the Dart partnership with GitHub where you can read more about what you can really do with supply chain security.

Are you going to include it in your workflow?
