I have written about this open-source tool before, but it has gotten a major update. Last month Microsoft announced the release of version 1.0 of Visual Studio Code editor, its open-source development tool. The cross-platform application reportedly has more than 500,000 monthly active users after just one year. There are also hundreds of extensions available for the product since Microsoft introduced extensibility in November. Version 1.0 now includes localized versions of the editor in nine languages other than English: French, German, simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish.
There’s also a little widget now in the bottom left corner that provides status updates and options for extensions. And you can select text in many columns and edit them all at the same time, and you will have the ability to have multiple tabs of files running at once in the editor in a future update.
