As we make the move entirely to Visual Studio Code, we continue to invest in areas that enhance productivity for developers. Specifically, we are enhancing the troubleshooting and debugging experiences, improving performance and usability when you work on multiple and large projects, empowering code insights and telemetry for ourselves and our partners, and extending capabilities in the AL language with, for example, profile extensibility.

The 2019 release wave 2 is the first version that does not include the classic development environment (also known as C/SIDE). Because the classic development environment contains tooling for many areas not directly related to actual development, we are also working on finding new homes for the features that currently reside in C/SIDE.
