Dart language editor

The Dart language grows quite fast, and thinks about the language itself and the tools at the same time, condition sine qua non to encounter success quickly, especially on the web development market. The Dart development editor is out.
One of the strengths of the tool  is the ability to compile Dart code into javascript seamlessly. The editor seems to be built upon Eclipse RCP, which is quite good and enables Google to eventually reuse skills from the GWT team (why not the GWT designer tool adapted to Dart?). We also could think about a Dart tool upon Eclipse Orion, the future web oriented development environment from the Eclipse foundation... But it is a little bit later :)
