4. Error capture#

Monarch improves Flutter error messages by providing more context when a story generates an error. And now, Monarch captures even more errors than before.

5. Support for all Flutter versions#

The Flutter team does an amazing job at providing regular releases of new Flutter versions in the dev, beta and stable channels. When a new Flutter version is released on any channel, the Monarch build automation starts a new Monarch build to support the new version. You can rest assured that Monarch will support every version of Flutter as soon as they come out. So, when you upgrade to the new Flutter version, Monarch will already support it.

We introduced support for all Flutter versions back in May and we are glad to see usage of Monarch across many Flutter versions and channels.
