Cannot omit 'new' keyword despite using Dart 2.0


When i run the tests of my application i get this exception:

NoSuchMethodError: Attempted to use type 'SimplePipe' as a function. Since types do not define a method 'call', this is not possible. Did you intend to call the SimplePipe constructor and forget the 'new' operator?

I conclude from this error message that my project is actually not using Dart 2.0 but Dart 1.0.
The sdk is set to >=2.0.0-dev.53.0 <2.0.0 in pubspec.yaml, though.

A friend of mine is getting this this error message when running the same tests under the same conditions on his PC. He already tried running pub get.

Dart 2.0.0-dev.54.0.flutter-46ab040e58 is incompatible with your dependencies' SDK constraints. Please run "pub get" again

The Dart 2.0 SDK does not enable this by default (yet).

For Flutter, you will need to be on the latest SDK:

In this blog post, we’ll take a deeper look at the specific improvements we’ve made in Beta 3 itself.

For the command-line VM, as mentioned in the comments, you must opt-in:

dart --preview-dart-2 bin/main.dart
