Here is the quite subjective selection of smaller messages of the past few days:
The software company Bitwarden has announced the general availability of Passwordless.dev. It is a developer toolkit that provides a rich API for integrating FIDO2 WebAuthn-based passkeys into websites and enterprise applications. The company also announced that it will provide a free version of Passwordless.dev that includes the full developer toolkit and is expected to support up to 10,000 monthly users. The Jtest and DTP testing solution offered by Parasoft for Java developers has now reached version 2023.1. DevOps managers should be able to benefit from the AI-supported JUnit test functions that are now available. Among other things, the new release contains an integration into the Visual Studio Code IDE, which should enable a better view of the results of the static analysis and the code coverage.As already announced at the beginning of the year, Postman is now providing the first beta version of the VS Code Extension ready for your own software. With this first version, users should be able to quickly test and try out their APIs while implementing them. The release focuses on the development of the core API client, which allows API requests to be sent across multiple protocols from within Visual Studio Code.Google has announced that Google Colab or “Colaboratory” will soon be introducing AI-powered coding capabilities and doing so will build on Google’s family of code models called Codey. With Colab, developers can write and run their Python code in the browser. Codey is a family of code models built on top of PaLM 2, which Google announced just last week at its Google I/O conference. According to the company, Codey was fine-tuned for this purpose using a large dataset of high-quality, freely licensed code from external sources.The Microsoft development team behind TypeScript has announced in a blog post the availability of Deopt Explorer – a VS Code extension introduced by V8 can analyze generated trace logs. Developers have used the software internally to explore the various deoptimizations, ICs, and object types that V8 creates during compiler execution. Now the tool is available for download on both the Visual Studio Marketplace and open source on GitHub.
