We have a beta release for version v0.7.0 of the julia extension for VS Code. Please give it a test drive, we hope to release v0.7.0 in about a week, but would like more folks to try the beta on their system before we release this to a larger group.
This new version has massive amount of improvements and bug fixes to the IntelliSense features, mostly thanks to @ZacLN, and some other new features:
- In general the IntelliSense features should work with many more corner cases, be more robust etc.
- We use the VS Code task system for running builds, tests and benchmarks now. If you open a folder, the extension will automatically detect whether that folder has a build, test or benchmark script. If it does, it will add detected tasks to the default list of tasks in VS Code, and you can run those tasks via the VS Code task runner.
- We now support the rename refactoring in the editor.
- We added a reload modules command.
To try the beta, go to https://github.com/JuliaEditorSupport/julia-vscode/releases/tag/v0.7.0-beta.2 and download the vsix file and then in VS Code execute the “Extension: Install from VSIX…” command. You probably have to uninstall any existing julia extension before you install the beta.
If you find bugs, please report them at https://github.com/JuliaEditorSupport/julia-vscode. If you have tried the extension and everything worked, please also report back. You can just respond to this message here. Ideally also let us know what platform you are on.
If we end up with more beta releases I will announce them as responses to this message here.
