I read this three year old article about UXP "New World" replacing the existing ExtendScript engine in Adobe products.

 

When I'm writing code in VS Code with version 2.0.0beta2 - 2022-02-14 of the ExtendScript Debugger extension, it still looks like the "old" ExtendScript engine is used.

 

How can I make sure the new engine is being used when writing scripts for Adobe products?

Hopefully, the fact that we've entirely disabled the Old World, should build confidence. 🙂 

The debug flag that disables New World, is now a no-op.
