Code-Server v4.0.1 Release Notes

Release Date: 2022-01-04 // 4 months ago
  • VS Code v1.63.0

    code-server has been rebased on upstream's newly open-sourced server implementation (#4414).

    🔄 Changed

    • 0️⃣ Web socket compression has been made the default (when supported). This means the --enable flag will no longer take permessage-deflate as an option.
    • The static endpoint can no longer reach outside code-server. However the vscode-remote-resource endpoint still can.
    • 0️⃣ OpenVSX has been made the default marketplace.
    • The last opened folder/workspace is no longer stored separately in the settings file (we rely on the already-existing query object instead).
    • The marketplace override environment variables SERVICE_URL and ITEM_URL have been replaced with a single EXTENSIONS_GALLERY variable that corresponds to extensionsGallery in VS Code's product.json.

    ➕ Added

    • VSCODE_PROXY_URI env var for use in the terminal and extensions.

    ✂ Removed

    • 🚚 Extra extension directories have been removed. The --extra-extensions-dir and --extra-builtin-extensions-dir flags will no longer be accepted.
    • 🚚 The --install-source flag has been removed.

    🗄 Deprecated

    • 🗄 --link is now deprecated (#4562).

    🔒 Security

    • 🛠 We fixed a XSS vulnerability by escaping HTML from messages in the error page (#4430).
