New for developers:
Added the ability to hide extensions. For example, it is useful for testing. Extensions can be published to the store, but removed from public access and reviewed, then open to all users. The feature works with both new plugins and existing updates.
In feedback, developers are shown the user’s configuration. With the help of this function, you can find out the IDE in which the plugin is used, its version and the version of the extension itself. This will make it easier for developers to understand the essence of the error reported by the user.
Added the possibility to complain about the expansion. If the plugin violates the rules of the site, the user can report this to the administration. You can send complaints and feedback.
Paid plugin developers can now offer automatic discounts to organizations that purchase licenses in bulk. The feature can be accessed in settings.
