Visual Studio Code updated with new features and improvements
Microsoft today released a new update for Visual Studio Code, introducing a couple of new features and improvements. With the latest update, Microsoft is introducing a horizontal layout for the split-screen editing feature which basically allows users to work on multiple files side-by-side. Previously, this feature only showed the different files vertically — but now, you can change the layout to show the files horizontally. In addition to this, Visual Studio Code will now offer auto-completion suggestions for inline CSS on your HTML files which can be a bit useful.
Here’s the full changelog:
- Horizontal layout – Organize your editors in either vertical or horizontal groups.
- Keyboard Shortcuts Reference – New printable keyboard shortcuts PDF cheat sheet.
- CSS autocompletion within HTML – Get rich auto completions for CSS embedded in your HTML.
- Debug hit count control – Set breakpoint hit count conditions.
- Simplified Node.js debugging – Easily configure your Node.js debugging sessions.
- Keymaps for Sublime and Atom – You can now use these well-known keyboard shortcuts in VS Code.
- Disable extensions – Quickly disable an Extension globally or for a specific workspace.
- Extension Packs – View dependencies of an extension pack right in the extension details.
All of the new features are available with Version 1.7 of Visual Studio Code, which is available on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. If you are interested in trying it out, you can download it from here.
