The latest update for Visual Studio Code, version 1.82, released in August 2023, introduces some intriguing features. One noteworthy addition is the support for port forwarding, which allows us to run VS Code on a local machine and share it for remote usage via the internet.
Port forwarding is set to private by default. Users accessing the shared workspace must log in with their GitHub account, which is the same account used to configure the port forwarding. This security measure can be changed to public, eliminating the need for login credentials (details can be found in the documentation).
Another new feature in this version is the Diff Editor, which incorporates a moved code detection functionality. It greatly simplifies tracking code relocations within a block.
The Command Center feature now displays search commands in the title bar search box by default. This tweak was well-received during testing, as it enables users to swiftly find the commands they need.
TLDR: The latest update of Visual Studio Code introduces support for port forwarding, enabling remote access and sharing of the IDE. Notable new features include moved code detection in the Diff Editor, default display of search commands in the title bar, enhanced TypeScript support, and the ability to decompile WebAssembly code for debugging purposes.
