[ANN] New vscode extension release: 1.8.0

This release includes some interesting new features:

  • You can now pass custom environment variables to the lsp server
    with the haskell.serverEnvironment config option per project basis,
    thanks to @jacobprudhomme.
    • For example:
"haskell.serverEnvironment": { "XDG_CACHE_HOME": "/path/to/my/cache" }
  • With this version the extension will try to use the newest lsp server version
    which supports the ghc used by the project being loaded, thanks to @mduerig
    • WARNING: This will suppose it will use an older version than the latest one,
      without its features and bug fixes.
  • The extension has lot of more log traces now, which hopefully will help to
    identify the cause of issues
