Update vscode default api version?

September 2, 2019 at 8:28am
Can the default api version of vscode be updated to the latest (1.37.1) ? Currently it's configured in theia to be 1.33.1 and missing some new apis. https://github.com/theia-ide/theia/blob/master/packages/plugin-ext-vscode/src/node/plugin-vscode-init.ts#L22 Are there any restriction doing so?

yes, please file a PR
there is also env variable to work it around
btw what is the motivation?
you can also specify vscode api version on start, see https://github.com/theia-ide/theia/pull/4774#issue-266298249

ok, i thought you want to use some extension which require 1.37.1? anyway please do a PR we are ok to be aligned with latest version
Ok, I guess some adjustments need to be made for this new api to work?
there are usually 2 issues, an extension cannot start because version is not supported yet or api is not implemented. Just bumping up a version will solve the first one. In order to implement a new API, we need a separate PR.
