Microsoft’s roadmap for Visual Studio include JavaScript and TypeScript

Microsoft's open source code editor, Visual Studio, is designed as a streamlined editor for code debugging, running tasks and version control; as workflows require the use of full-featured Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

While the roadmap for Visual Studio includes better performance, reduced memory consumption, and support for JavaScript and TypeScript.

The multilanguage code editor, performance-oriented plans also include support of language packs for community-contributed translation, and more diagnostics capabilities.

Microsoft aims to improve the discoverability in the use of TypeScript to type-check JavaScript code, with improvements in source maps so that it can be more precise and provide variable mappings. As the Visual Studio editor would gain the ability to organize and remove unused imports for the two languages.

It wants to enhance support for splitting and viewing multiple terminals, along with source control integration improvements that include the ability to view changes inside the editor using a peek/inline experience.

Microsoft also intends to improve both the extension recommendation system and searching, so that tracking issues caused by extensions would be simplified.

The initial version 1.0 debuted in April 2016 and supports Node.js, JavaScript, and TypeScript. Now, you can download the latest version of Visual Studio from the project website.
