Microsoft yesterday announced the release of Visual Code for Linux as Snap. Linux users can now enjoy seamless auto-updates for Visual Studio Code.

Visual Studio Code (VSCode) is one of the most popular code editors currently, because of a development that is going full steam ahead and that every month leaves launches full of new features. This April there are two announcements that the Microsoft project brings: new version and official Snap package.

This snap can run universally across over 40 Linux distribution variants, Visual Studio Code team can now focus on delivering new features instead of spending effort on packaging the app for different Linux variants.

Why Microsoft is using Snap? :

“The automatic update functionality of snaps is a major benefit. It is clear there is a thriving community around snaps and that it is moving forward at great pace. The backing of Canonical ensures our confidence in its ongoing development and long-term future,” said João Moreno, Software Development Engineer, Microsoft Visual Studio Code.

Visual Studio Code is hugely popular, and it’s fantastic that we’re able to help it extend its reach into the Linux ecosystem,” commented Evan Dandrea, Engineering Manager, Canonical. “Developers are the lifeblood of snaps and it is great to see this recognition from Microsoft as they join a host of others who can now provide their users with the latest updates seamlessly, and with an assurance of rollbacks and containment.

The snap for Visual Studio Code can be downloaded here.
