Connect to external REPL no longer working

Recently, after updating to Julia 1.10, the Connect to External REPL functionality with VS code is no longer working. I’m following the same steps, where I paste the auto-copied command into an external REPL, and VS Code gives confirmation that it has been successfully connected.

However, sending code snippets to the REPL via shift+enter opens a new REPL session inside VS code.

Has anyone experienced this and found a fix? thanks!

What version of the extension are you on?
