We are excited to announce that the January update to the PowerShell Extension for Visual Studio Code is now available on the extension marketplace.
This first stable release for the new year includes a multitude of fixes for the debugger! Expanding variables with properties that are inaccessible no longer causes a short-circuit preventing the rest of the properties from being expanded, variable values whose expansion results in PowerShell code being executed now works as expected, and in general all the correct properties are now present. We look forward to adding the ability to view static and private fields in a future update.
