Visual Studio Code – July Update
It’s that time again – we just published the next update to Visual Studio Code.
This is a pretty cool update that includes a set of requested features – the most prominent of which is ES6 support. We have a blog post on that that we will publish shortly. Here is a quick summary from the Updates section of our website.
- Several updates to how we handle files, including file and folder filtering in the explorer, opening files via the command line at a specific line number, re-using an existing instance when you open multiple files, ability to control the size of the working files list.
- Improved editor options that include support for removing trailing whitespace, improved search patterns with include/exclude filters.
///reference management, additional workspace settings
- Git enhancements, including an integrated credential prompt, multi-line commit message support and improved control over auto-fetch
- User-defined snippets support, and more built in snippets for common languages, i.e., Dockerfiles, Python, and Rust.
- Debugger enhancements including watch expressions, and improved Node.js breakpoint and source map support.
- Other Stuff: Proxy support, auto-update enabled for Mac and Windows, notable bug fixes
