C# for Visual Studio Code (powered by OmniSharp)
Welcome to the C# extension for Visual Studio Code! This extension provides the following features inside VS Code:
- Lightweight development tools for .NET Core.
- Great C# editing support, including Syntax Highlighting, IntelliSense, Go to Definition, Find All References, etc.
- Debugging support for .NET Core (CoreCLR). NOTE: Mono debugging is not supported. Desktop CLR debugging has limited support.

The C# extension is powered by OmniSharp.

What's new in 1.21.0

omnisharp.enableEditorConfigSupport setting to enable support for .editorconfig.
- Modified the auto generated tasks in tasks.json to generate full paths and disable summary to fix the problem of no source links in the problems panel.
- Improved analyzers performance by introducing background analysis support
- End of support for .NET Core 1.0 and 1.1 (
project.json-based .NET Core flavors).
- Added support for AdditionalFiles in csproj files
