An update about external keyboard issues and Flutter 2.5

Dart, Flutter, Issues1 min read

So I wrote about a regression last week with the external keyboard on iOS and Flutter 2.5. There's a little bit good news so I'm writing an update about it.

This is just going to be a quick post, so I'll cut to the chase. Someone(@moffatman) created a PR that potentially fixes the issue. You can find the PR here and you can keep updated about the issue here. There has been a couple of changes requested so things look promising. Now I guess it's just a matter of some small tweaks being made and it being merged in.

The bad(or neutral?) news is that I have no idea when this will actually hit stable. It's an engine change so I'm not sure if it will be able to be cherrypicked for a hotfix once it's merged in...I guess all we can do is cross our fingers and wait. If it lands on beta in the near future switching to beta might be a potential option for people who are affected, I think I will consider doing this myself too.
