Microsoft continues to meet every month with a new release of Visual Studio Code with noteworthy news, this time touching the version 1.24. The code editor, which did not start in the best way, changed its model in reaction to suggestions and criticisms from users, and fortunately, it can be said that it currently meets the requirements of the FLOSS sector and what users demand quite well. GNU / Linux users who prefer maximum automation.
Visual Studio Code 1.24 allows duplicate workspace to new window, this being a possible solution to the limitation of not being able to open the same workspace in two windows, something for which it is recommended to autosave files (files.autoSave) after a delay (afterDelay), in the change of focus (onFocusChange) or on the window change. On the other hand, the option to open a folder as a new workspace window is being deprecated.
At the documentation level, the part has been rewritten “Working with Docker” to show how to create, publish, and reuse Docker containers from Visual Studio Code. On the other hand, Microsoft has announced that it is working to manage MongoDB databases in the code editor using the extension Cosmos DB.
