For “happy coding,” the team wants to make the code editor more pleasant to work with by making it more flexible when working with position editors and panes, multi-selection and supporting multi-root workspaces. “You will see a significant focus on the fundamentals in the next few months as well, focused on performance, localized language support, and accessibility so that every developer can be productive with VS Code,” the team wrote on the roadmap. Fundamentals will include: improved startup performance, memory consumption, accessibility, language support packs, Windows update experience, and serviceability.
Other updates on the horizon include improving the extension recommendation system, improving extension searching, simplifying the ability to track down issues, showing users more information about extension usage, and enhancing the language API.
