A Look at the Latest Release of Visual Studio Code for Linux

A few days ago, Microsoft released a new version of their Visual Studio Code (VSC) text editor for Linux. In this article, we’ll take a quick look at the important changes since the last release and how they compare to other editors.

Visual Studio Code is an open source text editor available for Linux, OS X and Windows. It includes support for debugging, embedded Git control and GitHub, syntax highlighting, intelligent code completion, snippets, and code refactoring. It is also customizable, so users can change the editor’s theme, keyboard shortcuts, and preferences.

The version 1.1 update is mostly about stability and performance. This update features a smarter auto-update mechanism that is less interruptive to the user while they are working in the application. The new IntelliSense engine has been rebuilt to be both faster and more accurate than before with JavaScript and TypeScript code completion. Additionally, it now supports JSX/React snippets in JavaScript files and allows users to surround a selection with quotes or brackets by pressing Ctrl+’ or Ctrl+Shift+’.

The latest release also adds more accessibility improvements to the UI with better support for screen readers on Linux and improved keyboard navigation across all platforms.

Microsoft improved the experience with the latest release of VSCode. The May 2019 update has some interesting updates including a new settings editor UI, better extension recommendations, and more.
