What’s new and improved in Visual Studio Code version 1.72 (September 2022 Update)
Towards “cross origin isolation”
We have made changes to enable cross origin isolation for VS Code desktop and vscode.dev. This will enable new powerful features like shared array buffers. Both VS Code itself and also extensions and webviews will benefit from this.
Cross origin isolation is currently behind a feature flag and enabling it might have unwanted effects on extensions and webviews that load resources from the internet. You can read more about this in Why you need “cross-origin isolated” for powerful features. We would like to hear your feedback early.
Improved startup performance
We reserved engineering time this milestone to improve the startup time it takes from launching VS Code to seeing a blinking cursor in the text editor. We always keep track of our performance numbers and noticed a slight degradation at the end of last milestone that we wanted to address.
This was a team effort where everyone was contributing various changes throughout the source code. A couple of highlights are mentioned here.
Faster PR checks
