Visual Studio Code is a light-weight source code editor which is lighter than Visual Studio 2017 but is capable of syntax highlighting, code correction (using IntelliSense), snippets, code refactoring etc.
A new feature update has been released for Visual Studio Code 1.25. This new feature update brings about several improvements. Let us see what is there in store in the new update.
Technical Improvements in the Latest Update
TypeScript was updated to version 2.9.2 as far as the language is concerned.
A number of improvements were also brought, particularly for CSS. The latest DocumentSymbol API has also been introduced in the recent update for integrated Markdown support so that corresponding files may get a hierarchical structure now.
The external view has also received a lot of change and improvements by Microsoft. The layout for the extensions was redesigned and the Debug Toolbar has now been implemented as a Floating Panel.
Inside the editor, a new Grid Layout has now been made available and for subwords, new options like support and hovering have been introduced. A portable mode with other small options is now supported by Workbench. They have been added to increase the convenience of use. This involves better navigation and the capability of opening files and folders along with an empty Explorer through drag’ n’ drop.
Performance improvements have also been made available for the integrated terminal. In addition to this, new Outline view final was integrated into workbench. Some new features can now be viewed as previews. Among several other things, it includes a latest settings editor and the capability for implementation of their own Titlebars under Linux and Windows.
The new VS Code 1.25 can now be updated for macOS, Windows, and Linux as .deb, .rpm and .tar.gz. The changelog for this Microsoft release can be viewed here.
