With Visual Studio Code 1.67, aka the April 2022 release of Microsoft’s popular code editor, specific attention is paid to Explorer file nesting and Markdown code navigation. The release also brings Java extension updates.
Published May 5, Visual Studio Code 1.67 can be downloaded from the project website for Linux, Windows, or Mac.
With the update, Visual Studio Code’s Explorer tool, for browsing and managing files and folders, now supports nesting related files based on names. Settings for controlling this behavior include
explorer.fileNesting.enabled, which allows you to enable nesting globally or for a specific workspace;
explorer.fileNesting.expand, which controls whether nested files are expanded by default; and
explorer.fileNesting.patterns, which controls how files are nested. File nesting had been available in an experimental fashion for several iterations.
