Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code has recently reached its 1.0 release. Over the course of past few months, Microsoft has been trying hard to provide a stable and robust performance in Visual Studio Code, with numerous bug fixes and performance upgrades.
Announcing the release of Visual Studio Code 1.0, Microsoft also told the world that this particular code editor now has over a thousand extensions to make use of, and you can now use any language or runtime in the code with the help of such extensions.
What started as an experiment to build a production quality editor using modern web technologies has blossomed into a new kind of cross-platform development tool, one that focuses on core developer productivity by centering the product on rich code editing and debugging experiences. The code brings the industry-leading experiences of Visual Studio to a streamlined development workflow, that can be a core part of the tool set of every developer, building any kind of application.
Getting to “1.0” over the last few months has been about more than features. We have worked with the community to further improve stability, fixing hundreds of bugs. And we’ve pushed hard on getting the best performance we can out of the editing experience.
Visual Studio Code 1.0 is also fully localized, and the default version comes with native support for 9 languages.
