Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code has picked up another major update today. The Visual Studio Code team today released version 1.9 of the code editor, which brings a range of new improvements and a couple of new features.
With version 1.9, Microsoft is introducing a new welcome page for Visual Studio Code which gives users quick access to their recent folders and files, access to support resources, as well as the ability to quickly clone a Git repository. In addition to the new welcome page, Microsoft is also adding a new synchronized markdown preview which will automatically now make the preview for markdown files scroll automatically as you scroll in the editor itself.

- New Welcome page – Whether you are a new or returning user, the Welcome page helps get you started quickly.
