Iteration Plan for November 2017 #38268
This plan captures our work in November. This is a 5 week iteration. We will ship early December.
With Version 1.18 we made multi-root-folder workspaces available to everyone and we released plenty new functionality such as viewing diffs right in the editor, and we transitioned from Nemo to Dory
In this iteration we'll turn the dial more toward performance and github issues housekeeping. As a consequence you will find several performance explorations and engineering items on the plan. As you know a series of feature-rich releases always takes a toll on how much we can stay atop of all of our github issues. So, if all of a sudden you see a lot of github notification, don't get scared.
Bottom line, you won't see a lot of new features in 1.19 but you'll still get a better version of VS Code.
December 11 - 22 will not be covered by a separate plan. A couple of items are at the bottom of this plan. Our January iteration starts on January 2nd, 2018.
Below is a summary of the top level plan items. Given the large number of explorations, we'll diverge from our usual practice of having plan items for all bullets upfront. This time we'll add them as we go.

@albertosantini currently the spawned processes are spawned using the node that is part of electron. This helps to avoid shipping a separate node.js version with the product. This saves around 5-6MB. This plan item investigates the benefits of giving up on using electron's version of node.
Since we ship the node version that is part of Electron the issue to adopt version 8 .x of node.js would be in the Electron repository not in this one.
