Today i found more info on this so i am now more happy it is a future fit combination
The PlatformIO team is working hard on a new IDE for VSCode 2.0. https://community.platformio.org/t/plat ... ting/14097
This is most likely the reason why the current stable version is not updated as frequently as normal.
I joined the 2.0.beta version today. Using the disable option to globally disable the old and new PlatformIO Extention AND enable workspace both the a separate workspace i can have both installed.
To me this feals save to have both the beta and the old stable.
Additional to this i found a platform update option in the PlatformIO Home page.
This allows you to update to the latest ESP8266 (currently 2.5.3)
Not sure about the difference with 2.7.2 but at least you can update.
