Upgrading notes for v1.81.1

The code has been refactored in python, upgrading requires manual interventions:

pacman -Rdd code code-features-insiders
pacman -S code code-features-insiders

Don't reinstall them, uninstall and install these packages instead.

Since the code has been refactored, you can easily modify the code to upgrade to a new version by yourself if I cannot update this package in time. Simply download the latest tarball from code.visualstudio.com and extract them, then run update.py to update patch.json (The usage is documented in update.py), and run makepkg --skipchecksums -i to rebuild and install this package.

Microsoft has introduced new detection method for Pylance extension, now this AUR package cannot bypass the version check of it. Although you can downgrade Pylance to a lower version to continue to use it, but I'd recommend to switch to a FOSS alternative instead (e.g. Pyright) because you'll never know what Microsoft will do in the future. Microsoft sucks :)

The data folder has changed to ~/.vscode because some extensions provided by Microsoft will explicitly use that folder, otherwise they won't work.

Should maybe optionally depend on icu69 for liveshare to work with the code package.

Yes! Thanks!

To make copilot functional on community/code 1.67.1-1 I had to use this extensionEnabledApiProposals: http://sprunge.us/c2UZP4
