Visual Studio Code 1.66 became available on March 30. It can be downloaded from the project website for Windows, Linux and MacOS.
Also in Visual Studio Code 1.66, the built-in CSS extension now comes with a code formatter, implemented by the js-beautify library, which works with CSS, LESS, and CSS. For local history, VS Code 1.66 introduces a history of files available in the Timeline view. Depending on the configured settings, each time an editor is saved, a new entry is added to the list.
Elsewhere in Visual Studio Code 1.66, a language editor in the settings editor allows viewing and editing of all configurable settings for the language with the ID
languageId. Users can provide language-specific settings or language overrides. Also in the settings editor, workspace and folder settings are now retained until manually reset by the user.
Additionally, when searching in VS Code Terminal, all instances of the search term will now be highlighted while TypeScript 4.6.3, a minor update that fixes some bugs, now comes bundled with the editor. TypeScript 4.6 was released at the end of February.
Going deeper, an R topic in Visual Studio Code describes in-editor R language support through the R extension with Visual Studio Code for the web now also supporting drag and drop of local files and folders into a Browser window opened to vscode.dev or Insiders .vscode.dev using a browser that supports the Web File System Access API to access content.
Last month’s Visual Studio Code version 1.65 emphasized editor history browsing, debugging, and audio cues.
